*Obsolete* 17SxxXL PROMs not present

Description

Keywords: Spartan-II, PROM, 17s00xl

Urgency: Standard

General Description:
In the PROM Device pull-down menu, the 17S50XL, 17S100XL, 17S150XL, and 17S200XL are not available.

Solution

When the user selects a PROM in the PROM File Formatter, the tool simply checks to see if the input bitstream(s) are of the correct size (i.e. small enough
to fit in the targeted PROM). It is valid to select a different or larger PROM as long as the files will fit into the desired PROM. If the PROMGen command line is used, no PROM needs to be specified at all.

For example:
promgen -p mcs -u 0 yourbit.bit

This problem is fixed in the latest 3.1i Service Pack available at:
http://support.xilinx.com/support/techsup/sw_updates .
The first service pack containing the fix is 3.1i Service Pack 3.
