Using Spansion QSPI Flash S25FL512S as Configuration Flash

Hello,

 

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:

http://www.xilinx.com/support/documentation/sw_manuals/xilinx14_4/pim_c_introduction_indirect_programming.htm

Spansion:

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?

 

Thanks.

Hi,

 

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.

 

Regards

 

Simon
