ISP programmer for CPLD from Xilinx and AVR microcontroller (compatible with DLC5)
ZL4PRG programmer is an universal ISP programmer (In System Programming) which make possible to program AVR microcontrollers ad CPLD chips from Xilinx (JTAG).
Atmel AVR microcontrollers are equipped with an interface that allows programming their memory after mounting in the system (ISP). The use of such a programming method allows to give up the purchase of a relatively expensive stationary programmer and thanks to the short programming time of the microcontroller memory, the set: microcontroller-ISP programmer can be treated as a cheap version of the hardware emulator. The ZL4PRG programmer can also be used for programming CPLD systems (powered by 5 V voltage) from Xilinx, which are equipped with the JTAG interface.
When programming AVR microcontrollers, the programmer controls the program AVRXS, available for free at http://elm-chan.org/works/avrx/avrxtool.zip. It is a software working in the MS-DOS system, but it also works great with Windows 95/98/Me.
If you use the ZL4PRG programmer to program Xilinx CPLD chips, it should be used the free WebPack ISE software in any version, which can be found on the CD included in the book "Układy programowalne, pierwsze kroki" and is available free of charge (after registration) in Internet at: http://www.xilinx.com.
