When I attempt to program my Platform Flash XCFxxP, some options are not available in the "Programming Properties" dialog. Some of these are the "Parallel Mode", "Load FPGA", "Verify" and "Erase".
How do I set these options on my device?

These issues occur when you are using a Platform USB Cable II.
Platform Flash Programming Options
There are two possible ways to use the missing options on your Platform Flash:
- Generate an SVF file to carry out the programming; the Parallel Mode is available in SVF mode. You can then play the SVF file to program the flash.
- Use a Platform Cable USB. You will need to close iMPACT, change the cable, and then open iMPACT again.
To Verify your FPGA, you can use the standalone Verify option in the Operations menu or Processes window.
Both issues will be resolved in iMPACT 11.3.
