The STAPL target is similar to a live AMD Platform Cable USB or Digilent JTAG cable hardware target. The properties and Tcl commands are all the same, with the main distinction being that the STAPL target is not an active live cable. Any operations performed on this target do not affect the hardware until the STAPL is executed.

Note: You do not need a cable connected to your system to create an STAPL.
