*Obsolete* 4.2 iMPACT - No devices are visible when I load a CDF created in SVF/STAPL File Generation mode

Description

Keywords: iMPACT, CDF, chain, description, file, generation, SVF, STAPL, device, window

Urgency: Standard

General Description:
When I load a configuration chain description file (CDF) that was created in 4.2 iMPACT SVF/STAPL File Generation mode, no devices appear in the iMPACT window display.

Solution

NOTE: This problem is corrected in iMPACT for 5.1i.

After you complete the "File Mode" operations, switch the mode to "Configuration Mode".

iMPACT will report:

"There is an SVF or STAPL chain detected in File Mode.
Do you want to carry it over to this mode?"

Select "Yes", and the chain will appear correctly in the Boundary Scan Configuration Mode window.

(NOTE: This is not a problem with CDFs that are generated during PROM/SYSTEM ACE file generation.)
