Spartan-3E configuration - Is bitstream compression supported in the new SPI and BPI modes?

Description

Is bitstream compression supported in the new SPI and BPI configuration modes in Spartan-3E?

Solution

Yes, bitstream compression is still supported in the new SPI and BPI configuration modes.

Compression of the bitstream is supported through BitGen by taking advantage of a multiple frame write command that reduces the size of the bitstream. For more information about bitstream compression and how to enable it, see (Xilinx Answer 16996).
