Hello everyoneDoes anyone have instruction how to run boundary scan family device MAX3000A. I have hardware JAG tag with USB blaster, BSDL file, and Quartus 2 ver 11.0

What do you want to achieve? There's no boundary scan feature built into Quartus as far as I'm aware of. You need to a third party tool to perform boundary scan. I'm using e.g. TopJTAG probe.

I download the BSD file from Altera. What are all files need to run TopJTAG? Do I need some special hardware? Currently I have USB Blaster has 10pins connect to my device and I can flash CPLDs image in pof format in Quartus 2 Programmer. These pof files that generate from Altium Designer. Now I am find a way to do Boundary Scan.

--- Quote Start --- These video doesn't show me how to do boundary scan. --- Quote End --- Me neither. Generating BSDL post configuration files can have a purpose in boundary scan testing, but you still need a dedicated test tool. That's how I do boundary scan test with TopJTAG probe: Generate a TopJTAG project by importing the Altera .bsd file and optionally the Quartus .qsf file. The latter gives me symbolical names for all assigned design pins. Perform the test with configured FPGA in Sample mode to watch the user program operation. Or switch to Extest, control pin states to perform specific tests.
