10.1 iMPACT - The message "Readback to file failed" appears when I attempt to readback an XC9572xl CPLD


The Readback operation fails for an XC9572Xl CPLD when I select it in the iMPACT GUI. How do I perform a Readback?


To work around this problem, use the Readbacktofile command in "iMPACT -batch" mode. An example of how to do this from the command line is:

impact -batch

setMode -bs

setCable -port auto


ReadbackToFile -p <position of XC9500 in chain> - file <path/<file_name>.jed>

This issue will be resolved in iMPACT 10.1 Service Pack 3.
