4.2sp3 iMPACT - "Portability:90 - command line error..." occurs when I issue a JTAG instruction to a CoolRunner (XPLA3) device


Keywords: iMPACT, 514, CoolRunner, XPLA3, portability, XCR3032XL, XCR3064XL, XCR3256XL, XCR3512XL

Urgency: Standard

General Description:
In 4.2i iMPACT, the following errors occur when I attempt to perform any operation on a CoolRunner XPLA3:

"ERROR:Portability:90 - Command line error: Argument <pos1> must be specified for the switch '-position'."
"ERROR:iMPACT:514 - One of the options for this operation is invalid, please choose different options."

- These devices may be successfully bypassed.
- This does not affect the XCR3128XL device.


This problem will be fixed in 5.1i Service Pack 1, which is scheduled to be released in September, 2002.

Meanwhile, you can run iMPACT in batch mode to perform operations on these XPLA devices.

For more information on running iMPACT in batch mode, please see Appendix C: "Command Line and Batch Mode Commands" in the iMPACT User Guide, available at:
