*Obsolete* 4.1i iMPACT - 9500/xl/xv - iMPACT erases devices that have been read-protected
Keywords: iMPACT, 9500, read protect
General Description: When I attempt to program a 9500/XL/XV device that has been read-protected, the following error message appears, then the device is erased:
'1': Performing blank check on device ... '1': Device is not blank. '1': Blank check completed successfully. Validating chain... Boundary-scan chain validated successfully. '1': Putting device in ISP mode...done. '1': The device has 'read-protection' enabled. No read operations are allowed when in this mode. To disable read protection you must erase the device.
(Attempting to program a read-protected device should not result in the device being erased.)
