The Xilinx Application Note "SelectMAP Mode" (Xilinx XAPP502) mentions that ".hex" or ".bin" files are useful for configuration via a microprocessor. This option is available in the command line version of PROM File Formatter, but it is not available in the current GUI. How do I access these files?
This option to generate a ".bin" file was added in the 6.1i iMPACT software release. Prior to the 6.1i iMPACT software release this option was available only via the command line and was not available from within the GUI.
