.jam File Extension

Developer: Altera
File type: Jam STAPL File
You're here because you have a file that has a file extension ending in .jam. Files with the file extension .jam can only be launched by certain applications. It's possible that .jam files are data files rather than documents or media, which means they're not meant to be viewed at all.

what is a .jam file?

A Jam STAPL File is classified as a CAD file, and CAD stands for Computer-Aided Design. These Jam STAPL files are integrated with Standard Test and Programming Language specifications, also known as STAPL, and this was developed for the JAM format. PLDs (Programmable Logic Devices) are implemented with the same STAPL specifications. The content of a Jam STAPL file may include algorithm or source code, metadata details and pieces of data used to develop these Programmable Logic Devices. Specific data from vendors of certain PLDs are stored in these Jam STAPL files for the integration of standard coding requirements as a default format for the development of PLD designs. Applications sometimes called Jam Composer tools can be used to generate these vendor data for implementation into their PLD development projects. A vendor then distributes these Jam STAPL files for testing purposes using the Jam Player software. These Jam STAPL files are integrated with encoding specifications developed for the JAM format. These JAM files can be tested by using the Jam Player application. ASCII text formatting standards are also implemented into files affixed with the .jam extension. These JAM files can also be used for the compilation and development of byte-sub files used to serve as the representation of the binary data stored in the file in its uncompressed format.

how to open a .jam file?

Launch a .jam file, or any other file on your PC, by double-clicking it. If your file associations are set up correctly, the application that's meant to open your .jam file will open it. It's possible you may need to download or purchase the correct application. It's also possible that you have the correct application on your PC, but .jam files aren't yet associated with it. In this case, when you try to open a .jam file, you can tell Windows which application is the correct one for that file. From then on, opening a  .jam file will open the correct application.

Altera Quartus

Altera Quartus

Altera Quartus is a FPGA design software that is created to provide tools and functionalities in designing for all FPGA and CPLD families which are also developed by Altera. Quartus II Web Edition Software is the current product available to download. The CPLD and FPGA families this version support include Cyclone II, Cylone III, Cyclone IV, Cyclone V FPGAs, Arria II GX FPGAs but only EP2AGX45, and all MAX CPLDs. Aside from its basic support feature, this software also comes with ModelSim which is an Altera Starter Edition program from Mentor Graphics that is used for Verilog HDL (VHDL) simulation, but no need for any license to access it. It also has OpenCore Plus or PDF evaluation tools included for free. Other functionalities are verification tools, optimization tools, and design entry and synthesis tools. Altera Quartus is compatible with Windows and Linux OS computers, particularly Windows 7, Windows Vista, Windows XP, CentOS and SUSE Linux Enterprise.
Altera Jam STAPL Byte-Code Compiler

Altera Jam STAPL Byte-Code Compiler

Altera Jam STAPL Byte-Code Compiler is a compiler software developed by Altera Corporation for Windows computer users since it is designed to be compatible with Windows NT version 4.0, Windows 98, and Windows 95. The latest version is Jam STAPL Byte-Code Compiler Version 2.4 which compiles Jam STAPL files, with the text file format extension .jam, into .jbc files, which are the extension filename of STAPL Byte-Code. This new version does not only compile files that existed or created from 2.4 but also to older versions as early as 1.1. To install this software product, simply download the program and execute jbc.exe file, then double click it while Windows Internet Explorer is open. Another alternative is to go to the “Start” menu and locate the file name by choosing Run and browsing the directory list. Either step would lead you to the installation process of the program in which you follow any prompt instructions.
Altera Jam STAPL Player

Altera Jam STAPL Player

Altera Jam STAPL Player is a Jam file reader software that supports STAPL Specification which stands for Standard Test and Programming Language. Released in 2004, the latest version ready for downloading is Jam STAPL Player 2.5 but uses STAPL Specification version 2.1. This player does not only read Jam files but also applies vectors that can test and program devices in a JTAG chain. This means that the software routines that are necessary are those that can access JTAG chain. Jam STAPL Player is basically a reading software that programs and tests devices that are in a JTAG chain, which are text-based Jam files. To understand how all these work, STAPL addresses issues regarding the programming of PLDs in-system, which involves file formats, algorithms of vendor specific programming, and large size of files. It consists of two components to solve such issues, which are the Jam Composer and the Jam Player. The Jam Composer writes Jam files, while the Jam Player reads those files created. This particular Jam file reader software is compatible with Windows 98, Windows 95, and Windows NT.

a word of warning

Be careful not to rename the extension on .jam files, or any other files. This will not change the file type. Only special conversion software can change a file from one file type to another.

what is a file extension?

A file extension is the set of three or four characters at the end of a filename; in this case, .jam. File extensions tell you what type of file it is, and tell Windows what programs can open it. Windows often associates a default program to each file extension, so that when you double-click the file, the program launches automatically. When that program is no longer on your PC, you can sometimes get an error when you try to open the associated file.
