I would like to use Spansion S25FL512S flash as the configuration memory of my Kintex325T device.
I use Vivado 2012.4
The information here is confusing:
|S25FLxxS (2)||128Mb, 512Mb||Kintex-7|
2. 64kB sector size only.
S25FL512S is not a 64kB sector size memory. Sector size is 256kB.
Is Impact able to program the S25FL512S Flash memory?

Impact is past history obsoloted abondoned.
I guess vivado labtools will add support if not already.

We are using S25FL512S device on our current board to program an XC7K325T. iMPACT (14.7) was able to program it successfully (including the QUAD enable bit, (which Vivado does not seem to do)).
However, iMPACT used to freeze on my machine (or at least appeared to), when doing a device erase though. Ended up doing erase through Vivado 2014.2 and then programming through iMPACT to get the QUAD enable bit set in the config register.
