Is this device called USB-blaster-II? My Windows 10 shows it as "USB Serial Port" and refuses to install USB-blaster-ii driver from quartus\drivers\usb-blaster-ii. Any suggestions?
The Linear Technology DC1613A is not Intel USB Blaster II download cable. You need install the free LTpowerPlay software, and then connect your PC and the development board to a Linear Technology DC1613A USB-to-PMBus Controller. Both the software and the controller interface are available from the Analog Device (https://www.analog.com) website. You can refer to the DC1613A manual from the link below:
If you have further questions regarding on the Linear Technology DC1613A product please do contact Analog Device. We can only provide support regarding on Intel FPGA products. Thank you.
