PCI Parallel port card for JTAG / programming?

Started by ee_ether December 10, 2007
Hi,

I need a PCI parallel port card since the new PC is "legacy free".  I
use parallel port based JTAG debuggers and programmers for micros
(AVRs), CPLDs (Xilinx/Altera/Lattice) and FPGAs (Xilinx/Altera).

Which PCI parallel cards work or don't work for you?  Tried it under
Linux?

Seems like most PCI parallel cards are based on chipsets from Netmos
-- any luck with these?

Thanks.

I have a NetMos parallel card and it works fine (at least for Xilinx Parallel cable III JTAG) Peter Wallace

http://www.sunix.com.tw has a few cards that can be mapped to legacy ports. These work without problems once mapped to the legacy ports. Regards Anton Erasmus

Hi, I didn' t succedded to work with a Sunix Multi-I/O Universal PCI 4079A. But it' s ok with a Netmos PCI 9835 Multi I/O Controller

Why not just get a USB Jtag? It must work out cheaper and less messing about in the long run? -- \/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\ \/\/\/\/\ Chris Hills Staffs England /\/\/\/\/ /\/\/ chris@phaedsys.org www.phaedsys.org \/\/\ \/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/
