iMPACT 9.2 - Spartan-3A DSP Indirect SPI Programming error related to the ".cor" file

Description

When I try to program an SPI flash connected to XC3SD1800A using iMPACT in indirect mode, the following error occurs:  

 

"ERROR:iMPACT - '1':Core File 'xc3sd1800a_spi.cor' needed to program your 

device could not be found. Please check your installation."

Solution

This issue is due to an incorrect file name listed in the ".cor" file used by iMPACT when accessing the device.  

 

To work around this problem, rename the "xc3sd1800_spi.cor" file to "xc3sd1800a_spi.cor" in the <Xilinx>\spartan3adsp\data directory. 

 

This issue is expected to be resolved in 10.1.
