*Obsolete* 4.1is3 iMPACT - A non-Xilinx BSDL file generates "EXCEPTION:iMPACT:BsdlStorage.c:686: - Out of range..."


Keywords: iMPACT, BSDL, non-Xilinx, FATAL_ERROR, BsdlStorage, EXCEPTION

Urgency: Hot

General Description:
When I add certain non-Xilinx device BSDL files to a JTAG Chain, iMPACT reports the following errors:

"EXCEPTION:iMPACT:BsdlStorage.c:686: - Out of range."

"FATAL_ERROR:GuiUtilities:WinApp.c:560:$Revsion - This application has discovered an exceptional condition from which it cannot recover.Process will terminate. To resolve this error, please consult the Answers Database and other
online resources at http://support.xilinx.com"


This problem will be fixed in the next major software release.

To work around this issue, do not specify a BSDL or bit file for the device; instead, specify an arbitrary device name and the instruction register (IR) length.

The IR length can be found on the following line in the non-Xilinx BSDL file:

attribute INSTRUCTION_LENGTH of [device name] : entity is [length];
