Seeed has a cheap JTAG programmer/debugger for both major FPGA/CPLD brands. It emulates both the Xilinx Platform USB Cable and Altera USB blaster JTAG programmers with a flip of a switch.
As a Xilinx Platform USB Cable it is supported by the manufacture’s iMPACT, ISE, Chipscope and EDK software bundles. The firmware is upgradable through iMPACT like an official programmer. It programs all Xilinx FPGA and CPLD ICs from 1.5V to 5V.
It’s also an Altera USB blaster clone compatible with the Quartus II and SignalTap II software. Programming and debugging support for the whole Altera CPLD and FPGA range of ICs is available.
We ordered one to check it out.
