5.1i vs 4.2i iMPACT, System ACE CF - What is the starting device position when System ACE CF creation is run via batch mode?

Description

General Description: 

What is the correct starting device position when System ACE CF creation is run via iMPACT batch mode?  

 

NOTE: The standard batch mode start position base location changed between the 4.2i and 5.1i software releases. This change will only affect command line users, and does not affect file generation behavior from the iMPACT GUI.

Solution

For 4.2i software 

When you create a System ACE CF file in batch mode, add devices with the first device in position 0. 

 

For example

addDevice -position 0 -file ../design.bit 

 

 

For 5.1i software and later 

When you create a System ACE CF file in batch mode, add devices with the first device in position 1. 

 

For example

addDevice -position 1 -file ../design.bit
