2.9.3. Output Files Tab Settings (Programming File Generator)

The Output Files tab allows you to specify the type of secondary programming file that you want to generate (output) with the Programming File Generator. The Programming File Generator converts a primary programming file (for example, .sof) into a programming file for alternative programming methods (for example, a .jic for flash programming). The Output Files tab and options change dynamically according to your selections.

The following output file options are available:
