Due to the shutdown of travis-ci.org I no longer publish any documents on github.com. I've moved all the documents to my website.

gnipsel.com/mesa/index.html

I'm working on the 7i92, 7i95 using the knowledge I've gained over the last year programming the 7i96.

I just finished adding the expanded I/O selection to the smart serial cards in the 7i96 Configuration Tool... now to add them to the 7i95 Configuration Tool.

The 7i95 Configuration Tool is pretty much done.
The 7i76e Configuration Tool is mostly done.
When I finish the 7i76e I'll start on the 7i92.

Note: the 7i92 Configuration Tool will only read and flash firmware at this time. To create a configuration use the Pncconf tool.

I wonder is its practical to use Mesaflash's pin names in a configuration utility
The latest version of mesaflash allows replacing the pin names with daughter
board I/O names:

7I92 configuration pin-out: (for a G540)

IO Connections for P2
Pin# I/O Pri. func Sec. func Chan Pin func Pin Dir

Output-2 0 IOPort None
Spindle-PWM 1 IOPort PWM 0 PWM (Out)
X-Step 2 IOPort StepGen 0 Step/Table1 (Out)

 WOW that's sweet, I'll work on that in the morning.

I just added the ability to display a pin file if it exists by selecting a firmware then clicking on the pins button.
 
Just to be sure I'm reading the pin file correctly the Pin# is the physical pin on the DB25 or IDC26 connector?

Yes the Pin# column is the DB25 pin number on 25 pin FPGA cards
