Configuration sync word is not found

Jump to solution

I am using Spartan 6 FPGA and IMPACT 14.7.

When I try to program our Flash, I see this error:

'1': Programming in x1 mode. INFO:iMPACT - '1': Configuration sync word is not found during initial data load. Please refer to FPGA configuration guide for more information.
'1': Configuration data download to FPGA was not succesful. DONE did not go high, please check your configuration setup. INFO:iMPACT - '1': Flash was not programmed successfully.

What should I do? What is the meaning of "Configuration sync word is not found during initial data load"?

回复: Configuration sync word is not found

Jump to solution

At the beginning of the config data file, there is a special data word used as the Sync word. Only if S6 sees this word, it begins to take the following data into CRAM.

3 reasons for a sync word not found:

1. Config file corrupted.

2. SI issue.

3. You do not create the Config file correctly.
