6.2i/6.3i iMPACT - Platform Flash PROM (XCFxxP) "Programming failed" with compressed and revisioned PROM file


General Description: 

When targeting a XCFxxP Platform Flash PROM in iMPACT, a programming failure might occur if the PROM file created has revisions spanning more than one 8Mbit block and are compressed.


PROM files created with iMPACT or PROMGen 6.2i (each service pack) or 6.3i should be regenerated with 6.3i SP3. The ".cfi" file created with these earlier versions incorrectly represented the revision locations and caused the programming failure in iMPACT. 


6.3i SP3 contains the fix for this failure.
