How to program the PLD software

 

To update the software a JTAG programmer is required. I recommend an Altera USB Blaster or clone.

There is an umarked 6 pin  JTAG programming connection on the upper right hand side of the board. Pin 1 is marked.

JTAG Pinout

  3. TDO
  4. TCK

  6. TMS

The Altera USB Blaster requires the Quartus II Progammer Software for Windows to be installed. The download is 185 MB and installation requires 700 MB of hard disk space. The USB Blaster drivers are included in the package (find them in the folder after installation).
