Platform Cable USB Description
Platform Cable USB (Figure 1) is a high-performance
download cable attaching to user hardware for the purpose of
programming or configuring any of the following Xilinx devices:
ISP Configuration PROMs
CPLDs
FPGAs
Platform Cable USB attaches to the USB port on a desktop
or laptop PC with an off-the-shelf Hi-Speed USB A-B cable.
It derives all operating power from the hub port controller.
No external power supply is required. A sustained slave-
serial FPGA configuration transfer rate of 24 Mb/s is
possible in a Hi-Speed USB environment. Actual transfer
rates can vary if bandwidth of the hub is being shared with
other USB peripheral devices.
Device configuration and programming operations using
Platform Cable USB are supported by iMPACT download
software using Boundary-Scan (IEEE 1149.1 / IEEE 1532),
slave-serial mode, or serial peripheral interface (SPI). Platform
Cable USB supports indirect (via an FPGA IEEE 1149.1
[JTAG] port) programming of select flash memories including
the Platform Flash XL configuration and storage device. Target
clock speeds are selectable from 750 kHz to 24 MHz.
Platform Cable USB attaches to target systems using a
14-conductor ribbon cable designed for high-bandwidth data
transfers. An optional adapter that allows attachment of a
flying lead set is included for backward compatibility with
target systems that do not use the ribbon cable connector.
Note: The next generation, Platform Cable USB II, is now available.
Please refer to the DS593, Platform Cable USB II, for details.

Physical Description
The Platform Cable USB electronics are housed in a
recyclable, fire-retardant plastic case (Figure 2). An internal
EMI shield attenuates internally generated emissions and
protects against susceptibility to radiated emissions.
Operation
This section describes how to connect and use Platform
Cable USB.
Minimum Host Computer Requirements
The host computer must contain a USB Host Controller with
one or more USB ports. The controller can reside on the PC
motherboard, or can be added using a PCI expansion card
or PCMCIA card.
Platform Cable USB is supported on systems that meet the
Xilinx ISE® system requirements. For environmental
details, go to:
http://www.xilinx.com/products/design_resources/
design_tool/index.htm
and select the ISE tool of choice. Platform Cable USB is
designed to take full advantage of the bandwidth of USB 2.0
ports, but it is also backward-compatible with USB 1.1 ports.
Refer to "Hub Types and Cable Performance," page 16 for
additional information on connection environments and
bandwidth.
Operating Power
Platform Cable USB is a bus-powered device that draws
less than 100 mA from the host USB port under all
operating conditions, automatically adapting to the
capabilities of the host USB port to achieve the highest
possible performance.
Platform Cable USB enumerates on any USB port type (for
example, USB ports on root hubs, external bus-powered
hubs, or external self-powered hubs), including legacy USB
1.1 hubs. However, performance is not optimal when
attached to USB 1.1 hubs (refer to "Hot Plug and Play,"
page 5 for an explanation of USB enumeration).
Note: The DLC9G and legacy DLC9LP cable models draw less
than 100 mA from the host USB port. The legacy DLC9 cable
model requires 230 mA to operate in USB 2.0 Hi-Speed mode or
150 mA to operate in USB 2.0/1.1 full-speed mode. Some older
root hubs or external bus-powered hubs might restrict devices to
100 mA. The legacy DLC9 cable model does not enumerate on
hubs with the 100 mA restriction.
Device Driver Installation
A proprietary device driver is required to use Platform Cable
USB. Xilinx ISE software releases and service packs
incorporate this device driver beginning with version 6.3.03i
for the Windows operating system or 7.1i for the Linux
operating system. Platform Cable USB is not recognized by
the operating system until an appropriate Xilinx ISE,
ChipScope™ Pro or Platform Studio (EDK) software
installation has been completed.
Refer to UG344, USB Cable Installation Guide, for a
complete guide to installation of the Platform Cable USB
and its device drivers.
Firmware Updates
Platform Cable USB is a RAM-based product. Application
code is downloaded each time the cable is detected by the
host operating system. USB protocol guarantees that the
code is successfully downloaded.
All files necessary for successful cable communication are
included with every Xilinx ISE software installation CD.
Revised application code is periodically distributed in
subsequent software releases. ISE Service Pack and
WebPACK™ releases can be downloaded from
www.xilinx.com. Project Navigator automatically checks for
new releases when an Internet connection is detected.
When Xilinx applications are invoked and a connection is
established with Platform Cable USB, version information for
several software components is displayed in a command log.
Platform Cable USB also contains an embedded in-circuit
programmable CPLD. Each time a Xilinx application is
invoked, the firmware version for the CPLD is examined.
The CPLD is automatically reprogrammed over the cable if
the firmware version is out of date (see Figure 3).
Although a rare event, when CPLD reprogramming is
necessary, the CPLD reprogramming process can take
considerable time and must not be interrupted once started.
The reprogramming time via a USB 2.0 port can typically
take 10 to 15 minutes. Reprogramming time varies
depending on the ISE software version, the type of USB
port, and the performance of the host system. Later
versions of the ISE software can reprogram CPLDs faster
than older versions.

During a CPLD update, the Status LED illuminates red, and
a progress bar indicates communication activity (see
Figure 4). CPLD updates should never be interrupted.
When an update is complete, the Status LED returns to
either amber or green, and the cable is ready for normal

Found New Hardware Wizard (for Windows Only)
Platform Cable USB should be disconnected from the host system during the initial software installation. The first time a
cable is attached after software installation, Windows invokes the Found New Hardware wizard and registers device drivers
for the Platform Cable USB Firmware Loader (see Figure 5) and for the Platform Cable USB itself (see Figure 6).
Windows invokes the Found New Hardware flow each time Platform Cable USB is plugged into a different physical USB port
for the first time. The wizard screens could be slightly different for Windows 2000 environments.

Hot Plug and Play
The cable can be attached and removed from the host
computer without the need to power-down or reboot. There
is a momentary delay after connecting the cable to an
available port before the Status LED illuminates. This
process is called enumeration.
When Platform Cable USB completes the enumeration
process on a Windows system, a "Programming cables" entry
appears in the Windows Device Manager (see Figure 7). To
display Device Manager, right-click on My Computer, then
select Properties Hardware Device Manager.
iMPACT Configuration Cable Selection
Platform Cable USB can be designated as the "active"
configuration cable by following the auto-connect sequence
for configuring devices that is displayed when first starting
an iMPACT session.
Note: During the auto-connect sequence, iMPACT selects PC4
as the "active" cable if both PC4 and Platform Cable USB are
connected simultaneously.
Alternatively, the cable can be manually selected using
the Output Cable Setup option on the iMPACT toolbar
(see Figure 8).
When the Cable Communications Setup dialog box is
displayed (Figure 9), the Communication Mode radio
button must be set to "Platform Cable USB."
Before switching from the Boundary-Scan mode to the Slave
Serial mode or vice versa, use Output Cable Disconnect.
After the mode switch is complete, reestablish the cable
connection using the Output Cable Setup dialog.
If an iMPACT session is active when the cable is removed,
the Status bar immediately indicates "No Connection."
Configuration Clock Speed
The Platform Cable USB configuration clock
(TCK_CCLK_SCK) frequency is selectable. Ta b l e 1 shows
the complete set of available TCK_CCLK_SCK speed
selections for high-power USB ports.
In slave-serial or SPI mode, the TCK_CCLK_SCK speed
can be set to any one of the available selections. By default,
the TCK_CCLK_SCK speed is set to 6 MHz. Users should
take care to select a TCK_CCLK_SCK frequency that
matches the slave-serial clock (CCLK or SPI clock)
specification of the target device.

In Boundary-Scan mode, iMPACT 7.1i (and later) queries
the BSDL file of each device in a target Boundary-Scan
chain to determine the maximum Boundary-Scan clock
(JTAG TCK) frequency. iMPACT 7.1i (and later)
automatically restricts the available TCK_CCLK_SCK
selections to frequencies that are less than or equal to the
slowest device in the chain. By default, iMPACT 7.1i (or
later) selects either 6 MHz or the highest common
frequency when any device in the Boundary-Scan chain is
not capable of 6 MHz operation. Ta bl e 2 shows the
maximum supported JTAG TCK frequency for a variety of
Xilinx devices. See the device data sheet or BSDL file for
maximum JTAG TCK specifications.
Note: iMPACT versions earlier than 7.1i do not restrict the
TCK_CCLK_SCK selections in Boundary-Scan mode.
Accordingly, users should take care to select a TCK_CCLK_SCK
frequency that matches the JTAG TCK specifications for the
slowest device in the target Boundary-Scan chain.
A Status bar on the bottom edge of the iMPACT GUI
provides useful information about operating conditions. If
the host port is USB 1.1, Platform Cable USB connects at
full-speed, and the Status bar shows "usb-fs." If the host
port is USB 2.0, Platform Cable USB connects at Hi-Speed
and the Status bar shows "usb-hs."
The active TCK_CCLK_SCK frequency is shown in the
lower right-hand corner of the Status bar (see Figure 10).
The command log also includes information about
communication with the cable. When the cable is selected
using the Cable Communication Setup dialog box, the
command log indicates:
Firmware version = 1
CPLD file version = 0004h
CPLD version = 0004h
Cable Connection Established
Note: The actual revision number can be expected to change
with new software releases.
Status Indicator
Platform Cable USB uses a bi-color Status LED to indicate
the presence of target voltage. When the ribbon cable is
connected to a mating connector on the target system, the
Status LED is illuminated as a function of the voltage
present on pin 2 (VREF).
Users must design their system hardware with pin 2
attached to a voltage plane that supplies the JTAG, SPI, or
slave-serial pins on the target device(s). Some devices have
separate power pins for this purpose (VAUX), while others
have a common supply for both VCCIO and the JTAG pins
(TCK, TMS, TDI, and TDO). Refer to the target device Data
Sheet for details on slave-serial or JTAG pins.
The Status LED is amber (see Figure 11) when any one or
more of the following conditions exist:
The ribbon cable is not connected to a target system
The target system is not powered
The voltage on the VREF pin is < +1.5V
The Status LED is green when all of the following
conditions exist:
The ribbon cable is connected to a target system
The target system is powered
The voltage on the VREF pin is +1.5V
The Status LED is Off whenever Platform Cable USB enters a
Suspend state, or is disconnected from a powered USB port.

Suspend State
Every USB device, including Platform Cable USB, can be
placed into a Suspend state by the host operating system.
This can occur during any of the following usage scenarios:
The Suspend function key on a laptop computer is
pressed.
The display panel of a laptop is placed in the closed
position for transport while applications are running.
There is an extended period of time without data
transfer activity on the cable when connected to a
battery-powered laptop.
There is an extended period of time without data transfer
activity on the cable when connected to a desktop PC
configured with an "Energy Efficiency" option.
The purpose of the Suspend state is to reduce overall
power consumption. Suspend requests can be either global
or port-specific.
Platform Cable USB must consume less than 500 µA from
the hub port when it enters the Suspend state.
Consequently, the Status LED is turned off and remains off
until commanded to resume.
If an iMPACT operation is in progress when Suspend is
attempted, iMPACT displays a message indicating that
Suspend is blocked until the operation is complete or is
prematurely terminated (Figure 12).
The target interface logic, including drivers for
TCK_CCLK_SCK, TMS_PROG_SS, and TDI_DIN_MOSI,
is not powered in the Suspend mode. These signals float
to any DC bias level provided by the target hardware
during Suspend.
Note: Some computers remove power entirely from the USB port
in Suspend mode. This is equivalent to a physical disconnect of
the cable. When operation resumes, it is necessary to manually re-
establish a connection to the cable using the Output Cable
Setup toolbar selection.
Platform Cable USB Connections
This section of the data sheet discusses physical
connections from Platform Cable USB to the host PC and
the target system.
High-Performance Ribbon Cable
A 6" ribbon cable is supplied and recommended for
connection to target systems (refer to Figure 13). The cable
incorporates multiple signal-ground pairs and facilitates
error-free connections.
To take advantage of the ribbon cable, a mating connector
must be incorporated into the target system. This connector
is normally installed only during prototype checkout. When
the production hardware is functional and the ISP devices
can be configured from alternate sources, the connector can
be eliminated as a cost reduction option. Maintaining the
footprint for this connector is a wise choice if space permits.
The connector is a 2 mm shrouded keyed header. See
"Target Interface Connectors," page 8 for vendor part
numbers and pin assignments.

Notes:
1. Ribbon Cable: 14 conductor, 1.0 mm center, round conductor flat
cable, 28 AWG (7 x 36) stranded conductors, gray PVC with pin 1
edge marked.
2. 2 mm ribbon female polarized connector, IDC connection to
ribbon. Contacts are beryllium copper plated, 30 micro-inches
gold plating over 50 micro-inches nickel. The connectors mate to
0.5 mm square posts on 2 mm centers.
3. One ribbon cable is supplied with the Platform Cable USB.
Additional ribbon cables can be purchased separately (see
"Ordering Information," page 20).
Flying Wire Adapter
An adapter is provided for attachment to legacy target
systems that do not incorporate a shrouded male 2 mm
connector (Figure 14). The adapter makes it possible to use
flying wires for connection to distributed terminals on a
target system.
The adapter is a small circuit board with two connectors
(Figure 15). The connector on the bottom side of the
adapter mates with the 14-pin Platform Cable USB male
2 mm connector. A 7-pin right-angle header on the top
side of the adapter mates with the standard Xilinx flying
wire set (included).
Notes:
1. This method of connection is not recommended because it can
result in poor signal integrity. Additionally, damage can result if
the leads are unintentionally connected to high voltages.
2. One flying wire adapter with wires is supplied with the Platform
Cable USB. Additional flying wire adapters with wires can be
purchased separately (see "Ordering Information," page 20).
Physical Connection to the Host
Each Platform Cable USB includes a detachable, Hi-Speed
certified 1.8 meter A-B cable (Figure 16). Under no
circumstances should user-supplied cables exceed 5 meters.
Sub-channel cables (intended for low-speed 1.5 Mb/s
signaling) should not be used with Platform Cable USB.
A standard series B receptacle is incorporated into the left
side of the case for mating with the detachable Hi-Speed A-B
cable. A separate chassis ground is attached to the A-B cable
drain wire and returns ESD current to the host system ground.
Target Interface Connectors
Mating connectors for attachment of the high-performance
ribbon cable to a target system are available in both
through-hole and surface mount configurations (Figure 17).
Shrouded and/or keyed versions should always be used to
guarantee proper orientation when inserting the cable. The
connector requires only 0.162 in2 of board space.
The target system voltage applied to pin 2 of this connector
is used as a reference for the output buffers that drive the
TDI_DIN_MOSI, TCK_CCLK_SCK, and TMS_PROG_SS
pins.Ta bl e 3 provides some third-party sources for mating
connectors that are compatible with the Platform Cable
USB ribbon cable.

TDI_DIN_MOSI and TMS_PROG_SS Timing Specifications
For JTAG, SPI, and slave-serial configuration modes, the
TDI_DIN_MOSI and TMS_PROG_SS outputs change on
falling edges of TCK_CCLK_SCK (Figure 18). Target
devices sample TDI_DIN_MOSI and TMS_PROG_SS on
rising edges of TCK_CCLK_SCK. The minimum setup time
TTTSU(MIN) for target device sampling of TDI_DIN_MOSI or
TMS_PROG_SS is:
TTTSU(MIN) =T
CLK/2 – TCPD(MAX)
= 20.83 ns – 9.2 ns
= 11.63 ns
where TCLK/2 is the TCK_CCLK_SCK Low time at 24 MHz,
and TCPD(MAX) is the maximum TDI_DIN_MOSI or
TMS_PROG_SS propagation delay relative to
TCK_CCLK_SCK inherent in the output stage of the cable.
Reducing the TCK_CCLK_SCK frequency increases the
data setup time at the target.
Note: Timing specifications apply when VREF = 3.3V. Operation
at 24 MHz might not be possible when using a VREF below 3.3V
due to the increased propagation delay through the output buffer
stage of the cable.
TDO/MISO Timing Issues
When read operations are being performed in Boundary-Scan
or SPI mode, there must be sufficient time during each one-
half clock cycle for TDO/MISO to propagate back to the cable
for sampling. Figure 19, Figure 20, page 11, and Figure 21,
page 12 illustrate a potential problem when a 24 MHz
TCK_CCLK_SCK frequency is selected. An output buffer in
Platform Cable USB introduces a phase delay of 4 ns between
the cable and the target. (See cursors C1 and C2 in Figure 19,
page 11 for the CBL_TCK to TCK_CCLK_SCK delay.)
The target device has a variable propagation delay from the
negative edge of TCK_CCLK_SCK to assertion of
TDO_DONE_MISO. (Refer to Figure 20 for the
TCK_CCLK_SCK to TDO_DONE_MISO delay.) For
example, Figure 20 shows a 12 ns TDO delay for an
XC2C256-VQ100 CPLD.
Finally, signal conditioning circuitry in Platform Cable USB
introduces a third phase delay of approximately 12 ns between
TDO_DONE_MISO and the logic that samples the signal.
Note: (Refer to Figure 21, page 12 for the TDO_DONE_MISO to
CBL_TDO delay.)
Data is sampled approximately 11 ns after the rising edge of
CBL_TCK. The total propagation delay must be carefully
considered to successfully operate at 24 MHz. Refer to
Figure 30, page 19 for set-up timing requirements.

Target Reference Voltage Sensing (VREF)
Platform Cable USB incorporates an over-voltage clamp on
the VREF pin of the 2 mm ribbon cable connector. The
clamped voltage (VREF_A) supplies a high-slew-rate buffer
(NC7SZ125) that drives each of the three output signals.
VREF must be a regulated voltage.
Note: Do not insert a current-limiting resistor in the target system
between the VREF supply and pin 2 on the 2 mm connector.
No damage to Platform Cable USB occurs if the A-B cable
is unplugged from the host while the ribbon cable or flying
leads are attached to a powered target system. Similarly, no
damage to target systems occurs if Platform Cable USB is
powered and attached to the target system while the target
system power is off.
Buffers for the output signals (TCK_CCLK_SCK,
TMS_PROG_SS, and TDI_DIN_MOSI) are set to high-Z
when VREF drops below 1.40V. The output buffer amplitude
linearly tracks voltage changes on the VREF pin when
1.40V VREF 3.30V. Amplitude is clamped at
approximately 3.30V when 3.30 VREF 5.00V.
Refer to Ta b l e 4 for the relationship between VREF voltage
and output signal amplitude.
Xilinx applications actively drive the outputs to logic 1 before
setting the respective buffer to high-Z, avoiding the
possibility of a slow rise-time transition caused by a charge
path through the pull-up resistor into parasitic capacitance
on the target system.
Output Driver Structure
Platform Cable USB drives three target signals:
TCK_CCLK_SCK, TMS_PROG_SS, and TDI_DIN_MOSI.
Each of these signals incorporates the same driver
topology. A Xilinx XC2C256 Coolrunner-II CPLD generates
the output signals.
Each signal is routed to an external NC7SZ125 high-speed
CMOS buffer (Figure 22). Series-damping resistors (30Ω)
reduce reflections. Weak pull-up resistors (20 kΩ) maintain
a defined logic level when the buffers are set to high-Z. The
pull-up resistors terminate to VREF_A.

Refer to Figure 23 to determine the expected value of
VREF_A as a function of VREF.
Input Receiver Structure
A Schottky diode is used to protect the TDO_DONE_MISO
voltage comparator (Figure 24). In effect, Platform Cable
USB looks for voltages below VIL MAX to detect logic 0, and
tolerates voltages much higher than VREF_A because TDO
could be terminated to a supply other than VREF.
Signal Integrity
Platform Cable USB uses high-slew-rate buffers to drive
TCK_CCLK_SCK, TMS_PROG_SS, and TDI_DIN_MOSI.
Each buffer has a 30Ω series termination resistor. Users
should pay close attention to PCB layout to avoid
transmission line effects. Visit the Xilinx Signal Integrity
Central website, and see specifically Xilinx Application Note
XAPP361, Planning for High Speed XC9500XV Designs, for
detailed signal integrity assistance.
If the target system has only one programmable device, the
2 mm connector should be located as close as possible to
the target device. If there are multiple devices in a single
chain on the target system, users should consider buffering
TCK_CCLK_SCK. Differential driver/receiver pairs provide
excellent signal quality when the rules identified in
Figure 25 are followed. Buffering is essential if target
devices are distributed over a large PCB area.
Each differential driver and/or receiver pair contributes
approximately 5 ns of propagation delay. This is
insignificant when using 12 MHz or slower clock speeds.
Each differential receiver can drive multiple target devices if
there are no branches on the PCB trace and the total trace
length is less than four inches. A series termination resistor
should be placed adjacent to the single-ended output of the
differential receiver.
Note: If the target system incorporates a buffer for
TCK_CCLK_SCK and the 24 MHz clock rate is used, it is
recommended that the same buffer type also be provided for
TMS_PROG_SS. This maintains a consistent phase relationship
between TCK_CCLK_SCK and TMS_PROG_SS. A buffer is not
needed for TDI_DIN_MOSI, because it sees only one load.

Target System Connections
Multiple devices can be cascaded when using either JTAG
or slave-serial topology in target systems. Figure 27,
page 14 shows typical JTAG connections, and Figure 28,
page 15 shows an example of slave-serial routing.
The Platform Cable USB can connect directly to a single
SPI flash device. Figure 26 shows example SPI flash
connections. Refer to XAPP951, Configuring Xilinx FPGAs
with SPI Serial Flash, for a detailed reference design
showing the cable connections for programming an FPGA
bitstream into a SPI flash device.
The DONE pin on FPGAs can be programmed to be an
open-drain or active driver. For cascaded slave-serial
topologies, an external pull-up resistor should be used, and
all devices should be programmed for open-drain operation.
If the 2 mm connector is located a significant distance from
the target device, it is best to buffer TCK_CCLK_SCK, at a
minimum. These diagrams are intended to represent the
logical relationship between Platform Cable USB and target
devices. Refer to "Signal Integrity," page 13 for additional
buffering and termination information.

2. Attach the following 2 mm connector pins to digital ground: 1, 3, 5, 7, 9, 11, 13.
3. Typically, an FPGA and other slave SPI devices, which are not shown, are
connected to the SPI bus. The other devices on the SPI bus must be disabled
when the cable is connected to the 2 mm connector to avoid signal contention.
When a Xilinx FPGA is connected to the SPI bus, the FPGA PROG_B pin can
be held Low to ensure the FPGA pins are kept in a high-impedance state.

Hub Types and Cable Performance
There are two important hub specifications that affect the
performance of Platform Cable USB: maximum port current
and total bandwidth.
Maximum Port Current
Platform Cable USB is a bus-powered device that draws
less than 100 mA from the host USB port under all
operating conditions.
Note: The DLC9G and legacy DLC9LP cable models draw less
than 100 mA from the host USB port. The legacy DLC9 cable
model requires 230 mA to operate in USB 2.0 Hi-Speed mode or
150 mA to operate in USB 2.0/1.1 full-speed mode. Some older
root hubs or external bus-powered hubs might restrict devices to
100 mA. The legacy DLC9 cable model does not enumerate on
hubs with the 100 mA restriction.
Total Bandwidth
The maximum achievable bandwidth for a single USB 1.1
full-speed device is 8 Mb/s. The maximum theoretical
bandwidth for a single USB 2.0 Hi-Speed device is 56 Mb/s.
Because hub bandwidth must be shared among all
connected devices, actual bandwidth could be lower.
If Platform Cable USB is attached to a 1.1 hub, configuration
speed is degraded. Communication overhead and protocol
limit any given device to approximately 30% of total
bandwidth. For 1.1 hubs, the best achievable throughput is
approximately 3.6 Mb/s (refer to Figure 29).
If an external 2.0 hub is attached to a 1.1 root hub, operation
is at full speed (refer to Figure 29B). Hi-Speed USB
operation is guaranteed only if Platform Cable USB is
attached directly to a 2.0 root hub, or to an external self-
powered 2.0 hub that is connected to a 2.0 root hub (refer to
Figure 29D and Figure 29E).
If Platform Cable USB is attached to an external, bus-
powered 2.0 hub, it could enumerate as a full-speed device
(refer to Figure 29C). Bus-powered hubs can deliver a total
of 500 mA to all connected devices. If individual ports on
bus-powered hubs are limited to less than 150 mA, Platform
Cable USB does not enumerate and is unavailable for use
by host software applications.

Notes:
1. All times are in nanoseconds and are relative to the target system interface connector.
2. TTSU Min is the minimum setup time guaranteed by Platform Cable USB relative to the positive edge of TCK_CCLK_SCK.
3. TCSU Min is the minimum setup required by Platform Cable USB to properly sample TDO_DONE_MISO.
4. Propagation delays associated with buffers on the target system must be taken into account to satisfy the minimum setup times.
