MiniProg programmer -  Pros and Cons related to enCoRe II devices

Question: What are the pros and cons of using MiniProg for programming encoreII devices?




  1.   MiniProg programmer can be used to program enCoRe II devices without having to use the ICE cube - It can connect to the Modular Programmer and the enCoRe II applications board through the 5-pin ISSP header for programming purposes.
  2.   MiniProg along with a 5-pin to USB adapter (CY3655-PLG) can be used to program the encoreII devices through a USB cable.


The MiniProg can only program at 5volts and this could be an issue for low-voltage and wireless designs
