Description
Allows PC users to perform the following functions:
–
Program MAX® II, MAX 9000, MAX 7000S, MAX 7000AE,
MAX 7000B, MAX 3000A, advanced configuration (EPC2, EPC4,
EPC8, and EPC16)

Configure Stratix® II, Stratix GX, Stratix, CycloneTM II, Cyclone,
APEXTM II, APEX 20K (including APEX 20K, APEX 20KE, and
APEX 20KC), ACEX® 1K, MercuryTM , FLEX® 10K (including
FLEX 10KA and FLEX 10KE), FLEX 8000, FLEX 6000, and
ExcaliburTM devices.
Supports target systems using 5.0-V TTL, 3.3-V LVTTL/LVCMOS, and
single-ended I/O standards from 3.3 through 1.8 V.
Provides a fast and low-cost method for in-system programming
Supported by the Altera® Quartus® II development software
Interfaces with a standard 25-pin parallel port on PCs
Uses a 10-pin circuit board connector
Supports SignalTap® II logic analysis in the Quartus II software
The ByteBlasterMV parallel port download cable (ordering code:
PL-BYTEBLASTERMV) interfaces to a standard PC parallel port (also known
as an LPT port). This cable drives configuration data from the PC to Stratix,
Stratix GX, Stratix II, Cyclone, Cyclone II, APEX II, APEX 20K (including
APEX 20K, APEX 20KE, and APEX 20KC), ACEX 1K, Mercury, Excalibur,
FLEX 10K (including FLEX 10KA and FLEX 10KE), FLEX 8000, and
FLEX 6000 devices, as well as programming data to MAX II, MAX 9000,
MAX 7000S, MAX 7000AE, MAX 7000B, MAX 3000A devices, and EPC
configuration devices. Because design changes are downloaded directly to the
device, prototyping is easy and multiple design iterations can be accomplished in
quick succession. See Figure 2–1.
Download Modes
The ByteBlasterMV cable provides two download modes:
■
Altera Corporation
Passive serial mode (PS)—In Passive Serial mode, the Quartus II
Programmer can configure all Altera devices supported by the Quartus II
software except MAX 3000 and MAX 7000 devices, and all programming
options disappear from the Programmer window.
2–1
Functional Description
■
JTAG mode—Industry-standard Joint Test Action Group (JTAG) interface.
In JTAG mode, the Quartus II Programmer can program or configure all
Altera devices supported by the Quartus II software, except FLEX 6000
devices.
In JTAG mode, you add specific devices and configuration devices to the
device chain, in addition to POFs and SOFs, and you have several
programming options for each configuration device in the chain. You can
also verify EPC configuration device contents against its programming file
data, check that a device is blank, examine a programmed device and save
its data to file, or use its data to program or verify another configuration
device. You can perform these functions for EPCS configuration devices
using Active Serial mode.
ByteBlasterMV Connections
The ByteBlasterMV cable has a 25-pin male header that connects to the PC
parallel port, and a 10-pin female plug that connects to the circuit board. Data is
downloaded from the PC’s parallel port through the ByteBlasterMV cable to the
circuit board via the connections discussed in this section.

The ByteBlasterMV VCC pin must be connected to a specific voltage
for the device being programmed (Table 2–1). Connect pull-up
resistors to the same power supply as the ByteBlasterMV VCC.

The Altera Quartus II design software package provides the programmer
function required to configure or program devices using the ByteBlasterMV
download cable.
To configure or program one or more devices with the ByteBlasterMV cable and
the Quartus II Programmer, perform the following steps.
f
For a detailed explanation of the programming process, see the Programming
module of the Quartus II tutorial. See also the “Overview: Working with Chain
Description Files” and “Overview: Converting Programming Files” topics in
Quartus II Help.
1.
2–6
Compile a project. The Quartus II Compiler generates a programming file,
such as a SOF, a POF, a Jam File (.jam), or a Jam Byte Code File (.jbc),
depending on the target device.

2.
f
A driver must be installed before using the ByteBlasterMV cable with many
common operating systems. See “Installation on a Windows PC” on page 1–1
for more information.
3.
f
Attach the ByteBlasterMV cable to a parallel port on the PC running the
Quartus II software and insert the 10-pin female plug into the prototype
system containing the target device. The board must supply power to the
ByteBlasterMV cable.
Open the Quartus II programmer by selecting Programmer
(Tools menu). Choose Setup in the Programming Hardware section.
Specify the ByteBlasterMV cable and the appropriate LPT port.
For more information on changing the hardware setup, see “Installation on a
Windows PC” on page 1–1, “Installation on a Linux Workstation” on page 1–7,
or “Changing the Hardware Setup” in the Quartus II Help.
4.
Select either AS (active serial), PS (passive serial), In-Socket
Programming, or JTAG programming mode, and then add the files and/or
devices you want to program or configure using the add file or add device
buttons to create a chain description file (.cdf).
5.
Click Start in the Quartus II Programmer to program or configure the
device(s). The ByteBlasterMV cable downloads the data from the .pof
and/or .sof file(s) into the device(s).
Conclusion
Downloading configuration and programming data directly to the device via the
ByteBlasterMV cable allows you to verify multiple design iterations in quick
succession, thereby speeding the design cycle.
