JTAG SMT1 Surface-Mount Programming Module

USB2 micro-AB
Works with all Xilinx tools
Fully supported by Digilent's Adept software and Adept SDK
  • Small, complete, all-in-one JTAG programming solution for Xilinx FPGAs
  • Small form-factor (less than one sq. in.) surface-mount module can be directly loaded on target boards
  • Compatible with all Xilinx tools
  • Fully supported by the Adept SDK, allowing custom JTAG applications to be created
  • Able to drive JTAG bus at up to 30Mbit/sec
  • Single 3.3V supply
  • High-Speed USB2 port
  • Separate Vref drives JTAG signal voltages; Vref can be any voltage between 1.8V and 5V.
  • JTAG/TCK frequency settable by user
  • Uses micro-AB USB2 connector
The JTAG-SMT1 is a compact, complete and fully self-contained surface-mount programming module for Xilinx FPGAs. It can be accessed directly from all Xilinx tools, including iMPACT, Chipscope, and EDK. The module can be loaded directly onto a target board and reflowed like any other component.

The JTAG-SMT1 uses a 3.3V main power supply and a separate Vref supply to drive the JTAG signals. All JTAG signals use high speed, 24mA, three-state buffers that allow signal voltages from 1.8V to 5V and bus speeds of up to 30MBit/sec. JTAG signals are actively driven only during a programming event and are otherwise held in high-impedance, so the JTAG bus can be shared with other devices.

The SMT1 module is CE certified and fully compliant with the RoHS and REACH directives. It uses a standard Type-A to Micro-USB cable, also available from Digilent.

Note for use with Adept: The JTAG-SMT1 requires Adept System 2.8.1 or newer for use in Windows, and Adept Runtime 2.8.2 or newer for use in Linux.

NOTE: This cable is not needed for Digilent FPGA boards as our boards are designed with this functionality natively.
