13.x/14.x iMPACT - Verify fails with "INFO:iMPACT:395 - The number of difference is -1"

Description

When carrying out a Verify on a Spartan-6 FPGA in a chain with multiple devices I see messages similar to:


'4': Verifying device...INFO:iMPACT:2495 - Readback Size is 19623184.
INFO:iMPACT:396 - Readback to map unsuccessful.
INFO:iMPACT:395 - The number of difference is -1
'4': Verification terminated.
done.
LCK_cycle = NoWait.
LCK cycle: NoWait
'4': Programming terminated due to errors.


My device is programmed correctly and DONE has gone high. Why do I see these messages?

Solution

This is a known issue with iMPACT. If DONE has gone high, you can ignore these messages. This issue will be resolved in a future version of the tools.
