Compatability of using S25FL064L Cypress (Spansion) flash with Spartan 6 FPGA

Jump to solution

Hi Every One,

 

I am using XC6SLX9-2TQG144I in one of my design. Serial SPI Configuration mode is used to load the configuration files from SPI Flash (S25FL064LABMFV013) which is currently planned to use.

 

As per UG380, S25FL-P Flashes are compatible for indirect programming of configuration files through impact software.

 

As per the migration document from cypress, S25FL-P is migrated to S25FL1-K. The same S25FL-K is migrated to S25FL064L.

 

Refer the attachments for migration documents.

 

My query is whether indirect programming is compatible between XC6SLX9-2TQG144I and S25FL064LABMFV013 through Impact Software. Is there any special care to be taken while programming. As per cypress some steps has to taken while programming kindly confirm the same can be used or not.

 

Refer the link : https://community.cypress.com/docs/DOC-10499

 

For your reference I have attached the datasheet of flash also.

Hi @tuhk14065


You need to check Power supply, Command set ( for read, write.. etc), Sectors, Page size parameters compatibility of S25FL064LABMFV013 with Xilinx supported S25FL064P flash.

If above parameters are matching, then try programming S25FL064LABMFV013 with selecting S25FL064P flash in impact. If you get IDCODE not matching error then go for skip id code check workaround provided at https://forums.xilinx.com/t5/Virtex-Family-FPGAs/SPI-NOR-FLASH-MT25Q-not-listed-in-Impact-14-7/m-p/800648/highlight/true#M26017

 

Note : Xilinx recommends to use Xilinx supported flash provided at https://www.xilinx.com/support/documentation/sw_manuals/xilinx14_7/pim_r_supported_spi_bpi_proms.htm

Skip IDCODE workaround is not officially supported.
