*Obsolete* 4.2i iMPACT - I cannot create an .svf or .stapl file, as the options are grayed out in the GUI

Description

Keywords: SVF, file generation mode, Create SVF, iMPACT

Urgency: Standard

General Description:
In 4.2i iMPACT, I cannot perform an ".svf" file generation by using the Configuration Mode -> Boundary Scan Tab. When I attempt this, the options for "Create SVF" are grayed out.

Solution

4.2i iMPACT has two modes: File Generation mode and Configuration mode.

SVF file creation has been moved to the File Generation mode. If you use the Boundary Scan tab in Configuration mode, you will not be able to create .svf files.

The title bar will indicate the mode in which you are currently operating (File Generation or Configuration).

To switch to File Generation mode, go to the Mode pull-down menu and select "File Mode". Then, click on the SVF-STAPL tab.

Please refer to the iMPACT User Guide for more information.
