MultiPRO Cable - The MultiPRO cable is not functioning as expected. Where is the latest firmware upgrade?


I am experiencing the following problems with the MultiPro Desktop Tool:

- iMPACT appears to hang during firmware update. When I close iMPACT or disconnect the cable, the cable is no longer recognized and the pod lights do not illuminate (Xilinx Answer 19511).

- Cable status LEDs blink and iMPACT reports over-current failure or invalid speed error (Xilinx Answer 20911).

- Simultaneous use of Serial/JTAG and SelectMap interface results in configuration failure (Xilinx Answer 20912).

- I am having trouble connecting to the MultiPRO cable in iMPACT.

- MultiPRO connects only in compatibility mode.

- MultiPRO returns errors during "Identify Chain" or "Program" operations.

- MultiPRO hangs during operations.

- Other connection or programming related problems.


An updated version of the MultiPRO firmware is available that should fix the problems listed above. The firmware update utility is available at: http://www.xilinx.com/txpatches/pub/utilities/fpga/multipro_firmware_utility_rev16.zip.
