1. Setting Up the ByteBlaster II
Download Cable
Introduction
The ByteBlaster™ II download cable allows you to program and configure Altera®
devices. This cable drives configuration data from a standard parallel printer port on
your PC to the device on the PCB. Because design changes are downloaded directly to
the device, prototyping is easy and you can accomplish multiple design iterations in
quick succession.
Supported Devices
You can use the ByteBlaster II download cable to download configuration data to the
following Altera devices:
■
Stratix® series FPGAs
■
Cyclone® series FPGAs
■
MAX® series CPLDs
■
Arria™ GX series FPGAs
■
APEX™ series FPGAs
■
ACEX® 1K FPGAs
■
Mercury™ FPGAs
■
FLEX 10K® series FPGAs
■
Excalibur™ FPGAs
You can perform in-system programming of the following devices:
■
Advanced configuration devices including EPC2, EPC4, EPC8, and EPC16 devices.
■
Serial configuration devices including EPCS1, EPCS4, EPCS16, EPCS64, and
EPCS128 devices.
In addition, you can perform SignalTap® II logic analysis.
The ByteBlaster II download cable supports target systems using 5.0-V TTL, 3.3-V
LVTTL/LVCMOS, and single-ended I/O standards from 1.5 V to 3.3 V.
Power Requirements
The ByteBlaster II download cable requires between 1.5 V and 5.0 V from the target
circuit board.
The ByteBlaster II cable can be used in 1.8-V, 2.5-V, 3.3-V, and 5.0-V systems.
The ByteBlaster II VCC(TRGT) pin must be connected to the appropriate voltage for the
device that is being programmed. The pull-up resistors on the target circuit board for
the configuration/programming signals must be connected to the same power supply
as the ByteBlaster II VCC(TRGT).

The circuit board must supply VCC(TRGT) and ground to the ByteBlaster II cable for
the I/O drivers.
Circuit Board Header Connection
The circuit board’s 10-pin male header has two rows of five pins connected to the
device’s programming or configuration pins. Figure 2–3 shows the dimensions of a
typical 10-pin male header.

Although a 10-pin surface mount header can be used for the JTAG, AS or PS
download cable, Altera recommends using a through-hole connector due to the
repeated insertion and removal force needed.
