IMPACT 9.2.04i - Failure to configure Spartan-3A device in SPI Master Configuration mode after indirect programming of SPI flash


Why is my Spartan-3A device not configurated after Indirect SPI PROM programming?

When I attempt to program external SPI PROM via indirect SPI programming, IMPACT 9.2.04 fails to load the configuration image into the Spartan-3A FPGA device. IMPACT shows the external SPI programming failed, and the FPGA pulls INIT_B and DONE LOW. After power cycling the target board/device, the configuration works from the failed SPI programming device.


This issue is resolved in iMPACT 10.1.
