I ordered the Altera USB Blaster from EBay so I could get access to JTAG programming and debugging for this device.
Being a bit impulsive, I connected them and observed the Nano reset twice, then I started to smell that lovely hot circuit board smell and quickly disconnected them. The Nano operated normally after. I guess my first clue should have been that the Nano has 8 pins and the JTAG connector has 10 - 2 NC, and the NC are in the middle of one side. So I’m guessing I need some sort of adapter.
Since the Altera USB Blaster is a recommended interface, it stands to reason that there’s a recommended product or at least documentation for constructing a recommended adapter, but google-fu can’t find any references.
Anyone had any luck with this?
Am i just being thick and just need to map the pinouts of the 2 connectors?
