SmartLynq Data Cable


Product Description

SmartLynq is a high performance JTAG cable for high-speed FPGA and flash programming, hardware and software debug, performance analysis, and event trace. 

This cable delivers:

  • Up to 40Mbps throughput
  • Ethernet host connection for remote access
  • USB 2.0 host connection
  • Faster embedded software debugging
  • Support for Linux and Hypervisor aware debugging
  • 8 GPIO for additional debug signals

The SmartLynq Data Cable is backward compatible with the Platform Cable USB II through a standard PC4 JTAG header connection to the target board.
