10.1/9.2i iMPACT - Spartan-3A/Virtex-5 Indirect BPI programming fails


Indirect BPI programming fails with the following error message:

"INFO:iMPACT - Error Creating MDM Uart Module

ERROR:iMPACT - Failed to initialize target Device"


This problem has been seen when the Intel/Numonyx J3 BPI Flash devices are not powered correctly. Check that all VCC and VCCQ pins are powered at the levels specified in the Numonyx Data sheet. These should be above 3.0 Volts.
