Altera® MAX® 3000A devices can be programmed in-system via the industry standard 4-pin IEEE Standard 1149.1 (JTAG) interface. In-system programmability (ISP) offers quick, efficient iterations during design development and also offers a low-cost production programming solution.
MAX 3000A Device Programming Methods
- Altera Programming Tools
MAX 3000A devices can be programmed with Altera programming tools (including USB-BlasterTM, ByteBlasterTM II, ByteBlasterMVTM, and MasterBlasterTM download cables, and the Altera Programming Unit (APU) with the associated adapters) that are used with Quartus® II software.
- In-Circuit Tester
MAX 3000A devices can be programmed using in-circuit testers.
- Boundary-Scan Tools
MAX 3000A devices can be programmed using boundary-scan tools.
- Third-Party Programmers
Third-party vendors offer support for programming MAX 3000A devices.
- IEEE 1532 Programming
MAX 3000A devices support ISP using the IEEE 1532 standard.
- Jam STAPL
MAX 3000A device programming can be done with the Jam Standard Test and Programming Language (STAPL) programmer.
