The jam file extension is used for one of the main files from Jam Standard Test and Programming Language (STAPL).

There are two kinds of .jam files.

  • JEDEC Jam STAPL format
  • Jam version 1.1 (pre-JEDEC format)

The JEDEC Jam STAPL format uses the syntax specified by the JEDEC Standard JESD-71A specification. Altera recommends using JEDEC Jam STAPL files for all new projects. In most cases, Jam files are used in tester environments.

The Jam Standard Test and Programming Language (STAPL) was created by Altera engineers and is supported by a consortium of programmable logic device (PLD) manufacturers, programming equipment makers, and test equipment manufacturers.  Jam STAPL was adopted as JEDEC standard JESD-71 in August, 1999.

JBC format is the compiled version of JAM format.
