How to use special programming tool Xplayer which resides within SPIS01 software in order to program CPLD series chips produced by Altera and Actel?

Programming an Actel device requires running Staple player, available from Actel, and generate a programmable data file with .STP extension. Programming some Altera devices require running Jam Player, available from Altera, and generate a programmable file with .JAM extension.

XPlayer is a kind of special programming tool which resides within IS01 and is mainly for CPLD series chips produced by ACTEL, ALTERA etc. As long as the customer provides corresponding STP or JAM file (such files can be generated using such design tools as ISE, Quartus II etc.), the corresponding device can be programmed. Select “XPlayer” on the “Device” menu bar, then the dialogue box pops up.


Device related information is already included with either .STP or .JAM file, so there is no need to select a device for programming. Please have a look at the below list of devices supported in Xplayer. May be more devices will be added in future.
