14.2/14.3 iMPACT - Spartan-6 indirect SPI programming fails with Flash ID check failure and cannot detect SPI flash


iMPACT 14.2/14.3 fail to detect an attached SPI flash on some Spartan-6 devices. If attempting an Indirect programming operation the core file will load, but subsequently the operation fails with the following messages:

Validating chain...
Boundary-scan chain validated successfully.
'1': IDCODE is '000000' (in hex).
'1': ID Check failed.
INFO:iMPACT:2488 - The operation did not complete successfully.
INFO:iMPACT - SPI Device not found.

How do I work around this issue?


This issue is resolved in iMPACT 14.4. It only occurs in iMPACT 14.2 and 14.3.
