The iCEprog Desktop Programmer supports programming of the OTP fuses of Lattice iCE products (NVCM programming). It can also be used for SPI programming of iCE devices. However data programmed via SPI into SRAM memory on an iCE device will be lost when power is turned-off, or the device is removed from the Socket Adapter. (Note: Photo shows Socket Adapter installed)
A Socket Adapter is required to provide the interface for a specific device/package. These are available separately. See the Lattice Socket Adapter Listing to determine which socket adapter is required for the device you wish to program. Please note that the iCEprog Desktop Programmer supports only iCE socket adapters, as indicated in the socket adapter listing.
As of Oct 2, 2012, an ispDOWNLOAD Programming Cable is included with every iCEprog programmer. The programming cable completes the interface between the PC and the iCEprog programmer.
The iCEprog Desktop Programmer is controlled by the Diamond Programmer software, which is avaiable for free download. To learn more about using the iCEprog Desktop Programmer with the Diamond software and HW-USBN-2A cable, consult the Help files included with Diamond Programmer.
