A convenient and inexpensive USB JTAG programmer for TinyFPGA A1 and A2 boards.
Here comes the TinyFPGA Programmer. Rather than an FTDI2232 USB interface chip it uses a PIC16F1455 USB microcontroller. While not compatible with the FTDI2232 chip, the PIC micro has a much lower BOM cost allowing the programmer hardware to be cheaper.
The TinyFPGA Programmer slots onto the JTAG pins of the A-series FPGA boards. Using the TinyFPGA Programmer Application you can program .jed files generated by Lattice Diamond.
For more information on how to use the TinyFPGA Programmer with the A-series boards, see the A-Series Userguide at TinyFPGA.com
