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:
The SmartLynq Data Cable is backward compatible with the Platform Cable USB II through a standard PC4 JTAG header connection to the target board. It provides higher throughput than previous generation cables, allowing for faster programming and debug. It is compatible with the Vivado® Design Suite, Labtools, and Xilinx Software Development Kit.
