Replacement: None. We are no longer building this board. This page is for reference only.
Description: This is the SparkFun version of the Xilinx Parallel cable III, also known as the DLC5, with a pinout designed to work with SparkFun FPGA boards.
This unit does not ship with a 10-pin IDC cable. We are still waiting for them from our supplier.
Please note: This programming connection is not pin compatible with Xilinx or other manufacturers boards. We use our own pinout to allow longer ribbon cable runs without crosstalk. Ensure that the cable is connected as shown in the photos, as damage to the programmer and or FPGA board can result if it is improperly connected.
