While the debugger may be fine for you, the results are not easily conveyed
to the mailing list. If you use printf()'s to debug, you can post the
output to the list and everyone will be on the same page.

No. I know AN108 was sufficient for SPI/MPSSE. I don't know so much about
JTAG mode, but I'm guessing it should be enough.

First of all, note that you should drain the buffer before you write and
after you read. Not in between like you did above, as that's potentially
throwing away valid data. I always sync in association with draining the
buffer, so that is relevant. Also, you're not printing how much you throw
away, so there's no way to know if you're actually getting how much you
Second, you'll have to experiment, but I can tell you what I did, running
the 2232D part with a divisor of 2 (command 0x86, so 2 MHz) and with a
latency timer of 3ms and a usb_*_timeout=200ms. I have two booleans that
allow optional syncing globally before and after everything, but, reviewing
the code, they appear to be disabled in my MPSSE code and it works ok. I
had them all enabled while debugging, and it only hurt throughput, but
However, there are a few places where I sync regardless of the value of
* Right before sending my absolute first MPSSE command
* Right before sending the request for any data (i.e., input or input/output
but not for output-only ops)
* Right after a read returns fewer bytes than expected (possibly because
truly out of sync, or maybe just because of a time-out. Doesn't matter
Note that under normal conditions, none of those syncs or purges should
discard any good data. Only when there's an error will it discard anything
possibly useful. A higher level of my protocol will then re-send under
those failure conditions.

Yes. I guess I also missed that you're using the 'H' part. I am using the
'D' part, as it was chosen before 'H' came out. I think I should still be
able to figure it out, though.
At one point you said that:
>> the scope shows that TDI goes 0 1 0
How wide is that '1' pulse on TDI? Does TCK rise or fall in the middle of
the 1 on TDI?
>> i haven't been able to get the scope to read anything on TDO.
Hrm. Has that been the entire time, or just recently? AN108 seems to say
that TDO is what your target device writes out on and what the FT2232 reads
in on, so maybe that's why you're getting 0xFF's? Could you check if it's
being driven weakly (i.e., staying close to a rail but changing a little),
as opposed to not being driven at all?
