The Avnet Programming Utility allows an operator to connect a host computer to the Spartan-3A Evaluation Board using a standard USB cable. Once the connection is made, the AvProg host interface (GUI) can be used to program the:
1. Xilinx FPGA
2. Spansion Serial Flash Memory
3. Spansion BPI Flash Memory
The utility communicates with the board via a USB cable, using a standard Windows USB driver. The driver must be associated with the USB device (the Avnet Spartan-3A Eval board) whenever it is plugged in to a new USB port on the Windows host. This procedure is covered in the Installation section.
