iMPACT - Can customers program 3rd-party FPGAs or CPLDs using the iMPACT software?

Description

Can customers program 3rd-party FPGAs or CPLDs using the iMPACT software?

Solution

3rd-party PROMs can be programmed using the indirect programming method, but 3rd-party FPGAs and CPLDs can not be programmed using iMPACT. iMPACT can only be used to directly configure Xilinx FPGAs, CPLDs, or PROMs.
