3.4. Using ByteBlaster

The core module provides a connector and support for using the Altera ByteBlasterMV parallel port download cable and QuartusII development software. The ByteBlaster connector provides access to the JTAG scan chain through the Integrator system.

The ByteBlaster and Multi-ICE connectors cannot both be used at the same time.

ByteBlaster can be used in debug mode or in config mode:

  • in debug mode, it is used in conjunction with the ARM tool chain but you must use altera-rdi.dll in place of multiice.dll

  • in config mode, you must use the Altera programming tools in place of Multi-ICE and the progcards utility.

For more information about using ByteBlaster, see the Altera documentation.
