Xilinx programmer cable labels

Posted on Tuesday, January 21st, 2014 in components by DP


In reply for our earlier post about printing heat shrink cable labels, TomKeddie posted a picture of this Xilinx cable in the forum:

Just for reference, this is what Xilinx does. I guess the real question is when are you looking at the labels? Mostly during hookup, once they’re in place do you read them?
For making instructions photos I guess it is handy to have them at the circuit, but perhaps colour is enough?
I’d also like to see a little more heat-shrink too, longer lengths just feel more robust (provided it is thick enough)

Thanks TomKeddie!

    Black with white text. That’s what I’m talking about!

  2. These are the perfect cable labels for the Xilinx programmer. It will make easy to identify the different used cables. Thanks for the good post.
