Can I use the Examine feature in the Quartus II Programmer to read back a Programer Object File (.pof) and use that file to program other CPLDs?

Environment

  • Max® 7000B CPLD
  • Max® 7000A CPLD
BUILT IN - ARTICLE INTRO SECOND COMPONENT
Description

Yes, you can use the Examine feature in the Quartus® II Programmer to read back the .pof. You can then save this file and use it to program other CPLDs (of the same device code) or EPCS devices.

If the security bit for a CPLD is enabled, you will not be able to read back a valid .pof.
