Possible to program Lattice FPGAs with Bus Pirate v3?

Postby r00tb33r » Sun Apr 09, 2017 9:11 am

I've got a Bus Pirate v3 and I'd like to program Lattice MachXO2 FPGAs with it if possible.

Lattice uses FTDI chip/cable as the standard method for programming their devices.

I ran Diamond Programmer from Lattice and saw the following in output window with Bus Pirate plugged in:
INFO - Board with FTDI USB Host Chip detected.

INFO - Detected HW-USBN-2B (FTDI) cable at port FTUSB-0.


So is it possible, and if it is, could someone give me a rundown of how to configure Bus Pirate, pinout and any custom settings I would need to set in Diamond?

Help is appreciated.

PS someone else may also be searching for this, so this could be of value.

Unfortunately not. The FTDI chip is directly connected to the PIC microcontroller and not directly connected to a header.
