6.1i SP3 iMPACT- Where are the BSDL files for the XCF08P, XCF16P, and XCF32P Platform Flash PROMs? (Programming errors reported.)

Description

Urgency: Hot

General Description:

When using the XCF08P, XCF16P, and XCF32P BSDL files from the BSDL downloads area, iMPACT 6.1i Service Pack 3 reports errors when attempting to program these PROM devices, and ISE 6.1i Service Pack 3 is missing the package and BSDL files for the XCF16P Platform Flash. Where do I get the correct files?

Solution

This problem has been fixed in the latest 6.2i Service Pack, available at:

http://support.xilinx.com/support/techsup/sw_updates
The first service pack containing the fix is 6.2i Service Pack 1.

Temporary BSDL files are available that are compatible with the 6.1i Service Pack 3 iMPACT software. The patch is available on the Xilinx FTP site. This patch should be used only with 6.1i Service Pack 3. Included along with the ".bsd" files are three 'null' files required by iMPACT. Without these, iMPACT will issue ACD errors.

Please view the archived README file for installation instructions at:

http://www.xilinx.com/txpatches/pub/swhelp/ise6_updates/18866.zip

NOTE: These temporary files are applicable only to ISE 6.1 Service Pack 3. New BSDL files will automatically be provided with Service Pack 1 for ISE 6.2i.

Currently, no IEEE 1532 BSDL files are available for these devices.

Example iMPACT error messages:
