iMPACT - An error occurs when I attempt to generate an XSVF file for targeting a Spartan-3AN device

Description

When I attempt to generate an XSVF file for targeting a Spartan-3AN device, the following message occurs:

"The spartan3an device xc3sxxxxan is not supported in XSVF mode. The selected device will not be added."

Solution

To work around this issue:

  1. Create an SVF file using iMPACT to carry out the required Spartan-3AN device operations.
  2. Convert the SVF to XSVF using "impact -batch" mode as shown below:

    >impact -batch
    >svf2xsvf -fpga -rlen 10000 -i <file_name>.svf -o <file_name>.xsvf
    exit
