Changing VID/PID?

Is there any way for me to change the USB VID/PID of my XEM? Would this require a rebuild of the driver or is the driver configurable without a rebuild?

You cannot change the VID/PID of Opal Kelly XEM devices.

So, how does this work if I integrate your board into a product of my own – are you saying it will always identify under Plug-and-Play as an “Opal Kelly XEM 3005”?

In other words, you’re saying there’s no way to reprogram the EEPROM that the FX2 boots from?


That is correct. However, if you have such a need, please contact with your request. Please include as much detail as possible – project information, company, expected annual sales, etc.
