Functional
Description
The ByteBlasterMV parallel port download cable (ordering code:
PL-BYTEBLASTERMV) interfaces to a standard PC parallel port (also
known as an LPT port). This cable drives configuration data from the PC
to Stratix, APEX II, APEX 20K (including APEX 20K, APEX 20KE, and
APEX 20 KC), ACEX 1K, Mercury, Excalibur, FLEX 10K (including
FLEX 10KA and FLEX 10KE), FLEX 8000, and FLEX 6000 devices, as well
as programming data to MAX 9000, MAX 7000S, MAX 7000A,
MAX 7000B, MAX 3000A devices and configuration devices. Because
design changes are downloaded directly to the device, prototyping is easy
and multiple design iterations can be accomplished in quick succession.

Download Modes
The ByteBlasterMV cable provides two download modes:
Passive serial (PS) mode--Used for configuring APEX II, APEX 20K,
Mercury, ACEX 1K, Excalibur, FLEX 10K, FLEX 8000, and FLEX 6000
devices
JTAG mode--Industry-standard Joint Test Action Group (JTAG)
interface for programming or configuring APEX II, APEX 20K,
Mercury, ACEX 1K, Excalibur, FLEX 10K, MAX 9000, MAX 7000S,
MAX 7000A, MAX 7000B, and MAX 3000A devices
ByteBlasterMV Connections
The ByteBlasterMV cable has a 25-pin male header that connects to the PC
parallel port, and a 10-pin female plug that connects to the circuit board.
Data is downloaded from the PC's parallel port through the
ByteBlasterMV cable to the circuit board via the connections discussed in
this section.

To configure 1.5-V APEX II, 1.8-V APEX 20KE, 2.5-V APEX 20K,
and Excalibur, Mercury, ACEX 1K, and FLEX 10KE devices
using the ByteBlasterMV download cable, connect the pull-up
resistors to a 3.3-V power supply, and the cable's
VCC
pin to a
3.3-V power supply, and the device's
VCCINT
pin to an
appropriate 2.5-V, 1.0-V, or 1.5-V power supply. For PS
configuration, the device's
VCCIO
pin must be connected to a
2.5-V or 3.3-V power supply. The ByteBlasterMV
VCC
pin must
be connected to 3.3 V for APEX II, Mercury, ACEX 1K, APEX
20K, and FLEX 10KE JTAG configuration, or MAX 7000A and
MAX 3000A JTAG in-system programming. The device
VCCIO
pin can be connected to either a 2.5-V or 3.3-V power supply. The
ByteBlasterMV
VCC
pin must be connected to a 3.3- or 5.0-V
power supply for MAX 7000S in-system programming and must
be connected to a 5.0-V power supply for MAX 9000 in-system
programming.
ByteBlasterMV Header & Plug Connections
The 25-pin male header connects to a parallel port with a standard parallel
cable. Table 1 identifies the pins and the download modes.
