iMPACT 14.7 Help - Artix support for Winbond SPI flash

Description

The following appears in the help section of iMPACT 14.7:
 
SPI, BPI, and NAND PROM Support -> iMPACT SPI Flash Programming Support -> 7 Series FPGA Family Support
 
"Artix7 device only supports W25Q BW 8Mb. But even the smallest size of A7 device's bit file is over 17Mb."

Solution

W25Q BW8Mb is not supported on iMPACT 14.7.
 
However, W25Q 32,64, and 128 BV are all supported by iMPACT 14.7.

You can select these types of SPI flash in the iMPACT tool and program SPI flash without issues.
 
The help section of iMPACT will not be fixed and there is no plan to fix it in the future.
