- +
-Digilent Adept is a powerful application which allows for configuration and data transfer with Xilinx logic devices. ​  +
- +
-  * Configure the Xilinx logic devices. Initialize a scan chain, program FPGAs, CPLDs, and PROMs, organize and keep track of your configuration files +
-  * Transfer data to and from the onboard FPGA on your system board. Read from and write to specified registers. Load a stream of data to a register or read a stream of data from a register. +
-  * Organize and quickly connect to your communications modules. +
-  * Program Xilinx XCFS Platform Flash devices using .bit or .mcs files. +
-  * Program Xilinx CoolRunner2 CPLDs using .jed files. +
-  * Program most Spartan and Virtex series FPGAs with .bit files. +
- +
-**Installing on Windows 2000 & Windows XP:**  +
-You must be signed in as administrator to install Adept under Windows 2000 or Windows XP. For Windows 2000, you must also have up to SP4 as well as all web updates installed. ​  +
- +
-**Installing Adept 1.10 on Vista:**  +
-After the USB driver is installed, an "​Attach Your Device"​ dialog box will appear behind the main Wizard window. You must select this window in the task bar and click the "​OK"​ button to finalize the installation. The Install wizard will not finish and will appear halted until you have done this.  +

-====== Documentation ====== +
-  * The Adept SDK provides an API (Digilent Port Communications Utility or DPCUTIL)) for performing JTAG manipulations and data transfer with Xilinx FPGAs on Digilent system boards. Using this API, you can create your own data transfer applications for your Digilent system board. You can also create JTAG configuration and testing applications as well. A command-line data transfer program is provided to demonstrate the Adept SDK API. +

-===== ADEPT 2.3 ===== +
- +
-Adept 2 is a complete redesign of the original Adept framework. Adept 2 has been streamlined into a single application which expands upon the original Adept feature set. Not only does Adept 2 provide JTAG configuration and data transferring,​ it also adds board verification and I/O expansion features. Connecting and opening devices is now automatic and has never been easier.  +
