FT232H failed to program Xilinx XC3S50AN
« on: April 12, 2021, 07:52:01 AM »

We made PCB module using FT232H. I am using UrJTAG and xc3sprog to programming. It programs Xilinx Spartan 3 (XC3S400), Spartan 6 (XC6SLX4) then why it shouldn't program Xilinx XC3S50AN. Where XC3S50AN is programming using impact and HS1 JTAG cable so it is clear that our XC3S50AN circuit is good.
After all FT232H is your IC, Must Help.

The FT232H/MPSSE itself is not specific to the type of FPGA but it requires that the programming software supports the MPSSE JTAG programming for the selected target. I have never used xc3sprog but it may be that it does not have support for the XC3S50AN and so it would be worth checking with the developers of the utility.
