    • You have Xilinx "iMPACT" software installed on your computer. For instructions on how to install iMPACT on a SLC5 machine, go here
 
    • You have a Xilinx JTAG cable with an appropriate adapter (shown here) for connecting to the AMC13 front panel

  • NOTE: You generally should not have to program via JTAG unless your firmware has become corrupted and the AMC13 software can no longer talk to your module. If this is not the case and you can in fact communicate with your AMC13, please use the Python/C++ tools and follow the directions at the above links
