Product Description

The UltraBlaster, a USB download cable, is a 100%-compatible drop-in replacement for Altera USB-Blaster programming cable (specifically: USB-Blaster II, Rev. C, the most current version, refer to


Supported Devices:The UltraBlaster download cable allows to program and configure Altera devices. Specifically, it allows do the following:

  • Download configuration data to FPGA devices:   
    • Stratix II, Stratix GX, and Stratix family of devices
    • Cyclone II and Cyclone family of devices
    • APEX II and APEX 20K family of devices
    • ACEX 1K devices
    • Mercury devices
    • FLEX 10K, FLEX 10KE, FLEX 10KA, FLEX 8000 and FLEX 6000 family of devices
    • Excalibur devices
  • Download configuration data to User Flash Memory (UFM) devices:   
    • MAX II family of devices
  • Download configuration data to EEPROM-based devices:   
    • MAX 9000, MAX 7000S, MAX 3000A, MAX 7000B and MAX 7000A
  • Perform in-system programming of advanced configuration devices:   
    • EPC2, EPC4, EPC8, EPC16, and EPC1441 devices
  • Perform in-system programming of serial configuration devices:   
    • EPCS1, EPCS4, EPCS16, and EPCS64 devices
  • Communicate with and perform in-system debugging:   
    • Nios II soft core processor

Power:The UltraBlaster download cable supports target systems using 5.0 V TTL, 3.3 V LVTTL/LVCMOS, and single-ended I/O standards from 1.2 V to 3.3 V. The UltraBlaster is powered directly from the host USB port and the target system without the need for additional external power supply.


Software Requirements:Because the UltraBlaster is a 100%-compatible drop-in replacement for Altera USBBlaster  programming cable, any of the following software packages supporting USBBlaster also recognize UltraBlaster:

  • Quartus II software version 4.0 or later (for development, device programming, and configuration)
  • Quartus II Programmer (standalone version for programming and configuration)
  • Quartus II SignalTap II Logic Analyzer (standalone version for logic analysis)

NOTE: There is no need to install any drivers other than those provided with the software packages for the USB-Blaster.
