Tag-Connect TC2050-IDC or TC2050-IDC-NL cables are compatible with the various Altera Byte Blaster programmers and download cables.
Open the case of the Byte Blaster (if applicable) and simply unplug the existing 10-pin ribbon cable and replace with your Tag-Connect TC2050-IDC or TC2050-IDC-NL cable.
(Some but not all of the older parrallel-port Byte Blasters unfortunately have 10-pin ribbon cables hard soldered to the internal PCB. Open the case to see if your Parrallel-Port Byte Blaster is a removable ribbon cable or if the cable is hard soldered. At the worst, fit an inline 10-pin male IDC connector to the Byte Blaster cable and plug in your TC2050).
