XPLA ISP Programmer - (Device #) does not match with (a possible unknown) design file! - Operation aborted.


Keywords: XPLA, program, ISP, match

Urgency: Standard

General Description:
When programming a CoolRunner device using the XPLA Programmer, I
encounter the following (or a similar) message:

ERROR: (Device #) does not match with (a possible unknown)
design file! -Operation aborted.


The correct target device has either not been selected in the XPLA Programmer,
or was not selected when the design was implemented.

Make sure that the target device shown in the JEDEC file is actually the one that
is being targeted. The device targeted by JED file can be found by opening up
the JED file -- the target device is mentioned near the top of the file.

If the JED target device does not match the desired device, create a new revision
of the project that targets the correct device, and use the new JED file.
