FPGA Configuration - Can a 4000E or 5200 lead a 4000EX in a daisy chain?

Description

Can a 4000E or 5200 family device function as the master in a daisy chain containing a 4000EX slave?

Solution

Yes, this is permissible. The 4000EX, 4000E, and 5200 families configure themselves in the same manner (with the exception that 4000E does not use Express mode). Any one of these families can be used as a master in a mixed daisy chain.
