Chineese Xilinx programmer.

Post by arkadiusz.makarenko » Sun Oct 04, 2020 8:00 pm

Has anyone managed to make this programmer work?
Am I missing something to set it up?

Yeah you need to do something like reset each time between programings..... or use x3csprog

I'm using almost the same one (DLC9 without "LP") for years using Linux + ISE Impact.

Mine works fine, I don't use the PCB but connect directly to the programmer pins if that helps.
If it ain't broke, test it to Destruction.

It does work but has quirks.

1. You need to use the 64bit Impact.
2. You need to install and confirm that the Digilent USB JTAG Cable plugin is installed in Xilinx.

3. You need to reset after every operation... (only on clones)

I have 2 of them, they both work fine, but only with the bundled ISE 13 or 10

I dont need to reset, or do anything special and they work in Windows 10 just fine. It seems like pot luck.

You should also ensure you install the bundled driver, it seems they can determine if your programmer works properly or not if you accidently install the wrong version.

Installing drivers is for cable seems to be impossible (PAIN!). A lot of people on web with similar issue.
I will try x3csprog.

I have exactly the same programmer as you.
Here is an upload of my supplied software:
