Spartan Flash-Link USB
Many Spartan products benefit from computer connectivity capabilities for the purpose of modifying their configuration parameters or updating their firmware when improvements are made. To take advantage of these features an optional Flash-Link or Blue-Link interface module is required offering USB or Bluetooth connectivity respectively. In addition to computer connectivity the Bluetooth option can be used with certain PDAs and mobile phones providing a convenient way for editing configuration parameters at the field. Not all of our products support these options; specific information can be found on each product’s own web page. Flash-Link Requirements USB1.x or USB2.0 enabled PC running Windows XP or Vista operating system. Driver Installation The Flash-Link is an intelligent cable incorporating a USB controller inside the USB plug housing and therefore it requires operating system drivers to function. For a smooth installation ensure that the drivers are already installed before plugging the cable to the computer for the first time. Observe the photos below to identify the correct driver for your Flash-Link.
