10.1 iMPACT - There is no "Read Protect" option available for my CoolRunner-II device

Description

There is no "Read Protect" option available for my CoolRunner-II device in the "Programming Properties" dialog. How can I set this option?

Solution

The work-around is to use iMPACT in batch mode using the "-r" option. An example of the syntax follows: 

 

Open a Command Prompt 

 

impact -batch 

setmode -bs 

setcable -port auto 

identify 

assignfile -p X "<filepath>/<filename.jed>>" 

program -p X -r 

 

This is a known issue in the iMPACT GUI and will be resolved in iMPACT 10.1 Service Pack 3.
