Introduction
The USB-Blaster™ download cable interfaces a USB port on a host
computer to an Altera® FPGA mounted on a printed circuit board. The
cable sends configuration data from the PC to a standard 10-pin header
connected to the FPGA. You can use the USB-Blaster cable to iteratively
download configuration data to a system during prototyping or to
program data into the system during production.
Supported Devices
You can use the USB-Blaster download cable to download configuration
data to the following Altera devices:
■
■
■
■
■
■
■
■
■

For plug and header dimensions, pin names, and operating
conditions, see “Chapter 2, USB-Blaster Specifications”
Connect your USB-Blaster download cable to the circuit board as
instructed below.
1.
Disconnect the power cable from the circuit board.
2.
Connect the USB cable to the USB port on your PC and to the
USB-Blaster port.
3.
Connect the USB-Blaster download cable to the 10-pin header on the
device board. Figure 1–1 shows the USB-Blaster download cable
and the circuit board connector.
w
To avoid damaging the USB-Blaster cable, first unplug the cable
from the 10-pin header on the target board before unplugging
the cable from the USB port on your PC. It is safest to remove
power first from the target board before unplugging the
USB-Blaster cable.

The USB-Blaster cable has a USB universal plug that connects to the PC
USB port, and a 10-pin female plug that connects to the circuit board. Data
is downloaded from the USB port on the PC through the USB-Blaster
cable to the circuit board via the connections discussed in this section.
Voltage Requirements
The USB-Blaster VCC(TRGT) pin must be connected to a specific voltage
for the device being programmed. Connect pull-up resistors to the same
power supply as the USB-Blaster VCC(TRGT). See Table 2–1.

Revision
Descriptions
RoHS Compliant
Rev. A (1)
10-pin female connector is connected to the
USB-Blaster through a ribbon cable.
No
Rev. B
10-pin female connector is connected to the
USB-Blaster through a flexible PCB cable.
No
Rev. C
Hardware upgrade to meet the RoHS
lead-free requirement. 10-pin female
connector is connected to the USB-Blaster
through a flexible PCB cable.
Yes
Note to Table 2–7:
(1)
Revision B and Revision C cable has a "Rev. B" and "Rev. C" marking on the casing.
However, you can identify the Revision A cable if the cable is using a ribbon cable
and does not have the revision marking.
