*Obsolete* 4.1iSP2 iMPACT - 9500XL/9500XV - SVF programming fails


Keywords: iMPACT, 9500XL, 9500XV, SVF

Urgency: Hot

General Description:
The SVF file created by iMPACT is missing the TDO vectors needed to successfully program the device.


The vectors are missing only when the devices are set for sequential programming mode, which is the default. The problem can be worked around by writing out the SVF file in "concurrent" mode (one of the options in the programming window for 9500XL/XV).

This problem is fixed in the latest 4.1i Service Pack, available at:
The first service pack containing the fix is 4.1i Service Pack 3.
