Thank you for the wiki page, really appreciated.
Yes I bought the one in the picture.
It’s presented as “Altera USB Blaster” and I have found tons of same pictures on the web always with ALTERA logo on the box.
If it’s the wrong one I wasted just 11 Euros so not a big damage and I could keep it for the LimeSDR should I have the need in the future.
Actually the detail description contains the sentence “Fully compatible with original Altera USB-Blaster”… I should have paid more attention to the “compatible with original” words… my fault.
I’m a bit curious about the compatibility issue anyway. It is described with this features:
Supported target voltage : 1.0V-5.5V.
Support all ALTERA devices.
CPLD：MAX 3000A、MAX 7000A、MAX 7000B、MAX 7000S、MAX 9000、MAX 9000A and MAX II.
FPGA：Stratix、Stratix II、Stratix GX、Cyclone、Cyclone II、Cyclone III、ACEX 1K、APEX II、APEX 20K、APEX 20KE、APEX 20KC、FLEX 10K、FLEX 10KE、FLEX 10KA、FLEX 6000、FLEX 8000、EPCS1、EPCS4、EPCS16、EPCS64EPC1、EPC4、EPC8、EPC16.
Support：JTAG, AS, PS Mode.
Support NiosII embeded core based debug.
Supports Quartus II SignalTap II Logic Analyzer (for logic analysis).
High performance, 6 times faster than ByteBlasterII.
do you know of some LimeSDR Mini specific that is not listed here?
In the past I had to tweak the parameters of the sw driving the JTAG programmer in order to target the specific platform/hw…
When you had issues programming the Mini with this device, were you able to still use the Mini after or did the attempt leave the board unusable/without FW ?
