so even in times of WODE and WKF this seems to be on people's wishlist :)

If you make another batch, count me in for one (if it is cheap enough, I could take two so I have a spare).
Thanks.

Have you considered maybe selling kits?
Unpopulated pcb + flashed CPLD.

This isn't for the price difference, but mainly the DIY part :3

I'd be in for at least two adapters myself - - I am eager to take full advantage of what Swiss has to offer!

I just found out about this today, I'd very much like to get one of these adapters to play with, I'm incompetent when it comes to soldering so I'd have to buy one, if any are available please let me know!

I saw here in Brazil easy 50 units in 20/30 days at most if you can make some units, and an attractive price I picked up some pieces (one course for me, for my "EXI-IDE diy " not working, I have done something wrong) then tell me why this is true if "private messages" ok .
and also if you can only drive a pcb for me I thank you, so I can resoldar xilinx (blue-chip v9/v10) in another pcb
thanks

=========================================
Another question
I just did a test on my door "DB25" and pin 15 (Vcc) brand 5v instead of 3.3v would be right to be programmed Xilinx right?
pin 13 - 1.6V +/-

Will this be the error of my EXI-IDE not recognized by the program and so can not plan it, it always gives "cable failure"?

I do own a cable?
I made the cable and simple as the diagram posted only with a 4k7 resistor.
use windows xp 32bit

I can use this diagram to make the cable and program or not?

or

Help ! Please !!

======================

could make the cable to be recognized, I reduced the size of the cable and used an external power from a battery (2032) 3.3v, only now it's time to "program" it gives this error:

Wow. It must have taken a while for you to solder all those 40 pin IDE headers on.

Well emu I made a topic about making a third batch and if there is a demand and everything goes as planned I'm going to donate 10% of my profits to your site

You might want to get rid of C1 if you run into problems removing the PCB from the card slot

I thought it was for flashing the chip only then it could be removed. yeah I noticed I got stuck under the memory card slot :lol:

Here are two done and flashed now for testing and remove the JTAG pins. Hot air reflow is so easy for these small chips total build time 45 min to 1 hour each PCB

You don't need to solder pins in for jtag, just use a header on your programmer and hold it there whilst programming.

Oh well its a little late for that but I'll remember that when I'm doing the GCvideo project. I have a xilinx usb programmer I should know this but I'll be fine flashing the GC video with this programmer correct

you can use your xilinx programmer if you plan to convert the code over for xilinx....
else you might want to try using a lattice programmer with the lattice IC used in the design...

I would be willing to pre-order 2 or 3 adapters if there is another batch going around.
