Config-Cable - Simultaneous use of Serial/JTAG and SelectMap interface could result in configuration failure

Description

General Description:

Can I attach the MultiPRO Slave-serial and SelectMAP cables to my hardware simultaneously?

Solution

All MultiPRO firmware versions, up to and including revision 8, will create CCLK driver contention if the Slave-serial and SelectMAP ribbon cables are attached to a target system simultaneously. Configuration failures will result if both cables are attached and the target hardware has a common CCLK net.

To work around this problem, avoid simultaneous attachment of the SelectMAP and JTAG/Slave-serial ribbon cables to your system hardware when running MultiPRO firmware revision 8 or earlier. This problem is solved beginning with firmware revision 9. The MultiPRO firmware revision is displayed in the iMPACT command log each time a cable connection is established.
