When I attempt any JTAG operations on an XC2V250 device with iMPACT, the following error occurs:
"ERROR:iMPACT:1111 - Can't locate bsdl file xc2v250_bg352.bsd.
EXCEPTION:iMPACT:BsdlStorage.c:314:1.40 - File does not exist.
impact completed @ Fri Oct 4 18:10:41 2002
impact return code: 0
Total CPU time for impact: 8.59 secs"
This is due an error in the xc2v250.bsd file in the $xilinx\virtex2 directory. The correct version of this file is available in the Virtex-II BSDL file download, which is available on support.xilinx.com.
To resolve this problem:
1. Go to http://www.support.xilinx.com/support/sw_bsdl.htm
2. Download the xc2v.zip file
3. Extract the 2v250.bsd file contained in this download to the $xilinx\virtex2 folder in your Xilinx software installation.
This problem is also fixed in the latest 5.1i Service Pack, available at:
The first service pack containing the fix is 5.1i Service Pack 3.
