6.1i iMPACT - Configuring a device chain containing more than three PROMs leads to: "ERROR:iMPACT:1624 - '1':Operation terminated"


General Description:

When I configure a device chain that contains more than three ST PROMs, the following error is reported:

"ERROR:iMPACT:1624 - '1': Operation terminated."

The ST PROMs include any of the platform PROMs and the cross ship 18V00 PROMs.


This problem has been fixed in the latest 6.1i Service Pack, available at:

The first service pack containing the fix is 6.1i Service Pack 2.

You can also work around this issue by programming the PROMs in concurrent mode rather than sequential mode. To enable concurrent mode from the GUI:

1. Select Edit -> Preferences from the iMPACT GUI.

2. Check the box next to "Concurrent Mode" (CPLD and PROM).

To enable concurrent mode in Batch Mode, set the following preference:

setPreference -pref ConcurrentMode:True
