What is the IEEE 1532 Standard?
The IEEE Standard 1532-2002 is a standard for in-system configuration of programmable components such as complex programmable logic device (CPLD), erasable programmable logic device (EPLD), and field programmable gate arrays (FPGA).
The scope of IEEE Standard 1532 includes a series of mandatory and optional programming instructions and associated data registers that define a standard methodology for accessing and configuring programmable devices. These additional registers and instructions extend the capabilities of devices that comply with the IEEE Standard 1149.1, enabling the test access port to be used for configuration activities. A data description format and extensions to the boundary scan description language (BSDL) are also specified to provide for the development of standardized automation tools for device programming.
