Spartan 6 configuration modes

Hi,

I am designing a custom board with Spartan 6. we'd like to have both "master serial" (from a FLASH)  and  "slave serial mode" (Via microprocessor)  configuration options. Just wondering if it is possible to have both master and slave configurations.

Thanks.

Re: Spartan 6 configuration modes

thanks.

My problem is with the "cclk" pin. in the "Master Serial" mode this is an output pin to the SPI flash while in the "Salve Serial" mode this pin is an input driven by the SPI clock from the processor. should I use a jumper for this two modes of operation.
