MiniProg programmer - Pros and Cons related to enCoRe II devices

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

 

Answer:

Pros

  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.

Cons

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