JTAG Chain Configuration Pane (View Menu) (In-System Sources and Probes Editor)

You open this pane by opening the In-System Sources and Probes Editor, and then clicking JTAG Chain Configuration on the View menu.

Allows you to specify programming hardware, device, and file settings. The In-System Sources and Probes Editor uses the configuration data to program the device with a SRAM Object File (.sof) Definition and read data from the device.

JTAG Status:

Displays status messages for the In-System Sources and Probes Editor JTAG chain configuration (such as JTAG ready).


Allows you to select the communications cable, such as the ByteBlasterMV, ByteBlasterII, or USB-Blaster, and displays the name of the currently selected communications cable and the port to which it is connected.


Opens the Hardware Setup dialog box which allows you to add and remove hardware items from the Hardware list, add and remove JTAG servers, configure your local JTAG server, and specify a hardware setup for device programming and configuration.


Contains a list of the devices on the circuit board connected to your system, and displays the device you are using. The device list is populated when you click Scan Chain.

The name of the device is in the following format: <number on circuit board>: <JTAG ID code>: <device name>. For example, in the device name @1: 0x082000DD: EP20K200C, @1 indicates that it is the first device on the circuit board, 0x082000DD is the JTAG ID code for the device, and EP20K200C is the device name.

Scan Chain:

Scans for devices on the circuit board that are connected to your system. The detected devices are displayed in the Device list.

Program Device :

Allows you to use the SRAM Object File specified in the File box to program the device selected in the Device list.


Allows you to specify an SRAM Object File that contains the data to program the device.
