Introduction to SelectMAP
SelectMAP Mode Functions
SelectMAP configuration mode enables you to program up to three Xilinx® devices and allows parallel reading and writing through byte-wide ports. The devices are programmed one at a time and are selected by the assertion of the correct CS pin. An external clock source, such as a microprocessor, download cable, or other FPGA, is required. The data is loaded one byte per CCLK pulse.
This mode is supported by Virtex® and some Spartan® families and typically used as a configuration mode when configuration speed is an important factor.
Note  Only the MultiPRO cable can be used for SelectMAP configuration.
