Failed to query common flash interface.

Hi All,

 

This is rather urgent.

 

I have Programmed this same flash on this same PCB many times before. I got this Message today and nothing that I do, with the help from existing answers on the forum, solved the problem. I am using ISE 13.1 with a XC6VLX550T and a PC28f256P30BF Parallel Flash. The speed on my cable is 3MHz

 

How do I fix this.

Hiii,

 

I am Using same Version 14.7 ISE tool for my program,but still i am unable to program my Virtex 7 PROM in impact.

i am also try for lower versions also,but no use at all.all my other boards are working with same code,but only one board was unable to program V7 PROM.

all my hardware setting are same as per datasheet,but still i am getting same error.FPGA was programed successfully,but PROM was not.

 

can anyone resolve this issue,please inform us to program the V7 PROM(PC28F512P30B)

 

Regards,

vrinda

Hi,

 

I have a similar problem, it looks like the flash suddenly stops working. I'm able to load the flash sometimes but when it fails shows this:

I can't probe any of the data or address lines due to the PCB design, so I'll get the flash replaced, but I'd like to know what are the errors in the core status register in case the problem is other than a bad flash.

 

Thanks,

Diego

Hi Diego,

 

I could not, till today, resolve this problem. I had a very knowledgeable engineer, that do training in Africa on Xilinx products, from an engineering company in Sandton South Africa, have a look at this problem. He came to the conclusion, after looking at my design, error messages, log files and e-mails between me and Xilinx Support, that the problem is not the Flash but indeed the Xilinx FPGA. He told me that there is a workaround. We are working on that.

Cois

Hi Cois,

 

Thanks, I'll contact the Xilinx representative that supports the company, it did look strange to me a new board with flash failure, although is even more so issues with the FPGA.

 

Regards,

Diego
