The Digilent USB2 Module Board (the USB2) is used to connect any Digilent system board to a USB 2.0 connection. The USB2 is based on the Cypress CY7C68013 USB controller and can be used to configure system boards or exchange data with a PC. Digilent firmware in the Cypress USB controller works with Digilent's PC-based Adept Software to coordinate JTAG programming and user data transfers. The user data port uses the 14 signal enhanced parallel port (EPP) protocol.
The firmware in the Cypress USB controller can be modified using the Cypress EZ-USB development kit availabale from Cypress. (Digilent does not offer user support for modifying this firmware.)
The USB2 is compatable with all newer Digilent system boards including the Spartan®-3, Pegasus, D2SB, and D2FT boards. It can also be used with the older D2 and D2E boards for user data transfers, but not for programming.
