10.1 iMPACT - There is no option to program my Platform Flash as Configuration Master


In the PROM programming options dialog, I cannot select a programming property to set my Platform Flash PROM as the Master and generate the clock during configuration. How can this option be set?


To work around this issue, you can program the PROM using iMPACT batch mode. An example of commands you could use is as follows:

impact -batch

setmode -bs

setcable -port auto


assignfile -p [position of PROM in chain] - File "filepath/filename"

program -master [Additional options needed] -p [position of PROM in chain]

This is a known issue in iMPACT 10.1. It will be resolved in iMPACT 10.1 Service Pack 2.
