i have pcb that has xcs05 xilinx fpga,it is destroyed and need to replace,please help me how can i read program in ok pcb and then write to new one chip or not need to read and replacing this chip is enough.and which software can read this chip and program another xcs05?

Hi xilinx2000-@reza ,
This user from this forum had a similar question of retrieving a bit file from a Spartan 3 through JTAG. Check it out and see if it can help.

thank you so much for reply,sorry i don't underestand.as i post question is in one pcb(hmi motherboard) the xcs05 destroyed and i want replace it with new one .now i want know the inside of this chip have program or no?Replacing the chip itself is enough or must be reprogrammed?

I believe you are asking whether if replacing the damaged FPGA on your PCB will allow result in a working system. In that case, it depends on your configuration method. How is the FPGA being configured?

Considering this FPGA is does not contain any configuration memory within the chip itself, your system should be restored if you replace the FPGA with an undamaged identical part. However, before taking these steps, you should determine the configuration method and verify the configuration memory source is undamaged. The FPGA can either actively read its configuration data from an external serial PROM (Master Serial mode), or the configuration data can be written into the FPGA from an external device (Slave Serial mode).
