Configuring a FLEX 6000 with an EPCQ config device

I'm looking for a replacement for the EPC1LC20N  which I am currently using to configure FLEX 6000 devices.

 

I see in PDN 1708 that there is no replacement specified for this part. 

 

Is there a way I can use an EPCQ device or generic flash to program a FLEX 6000 device?

 

Thanks

Hello,

Flex6K uses a passive serial configuration scheme. If you don't have a programmable controller in your application that can perform the configuration load process, a serial flash in combination with a low pincount microcontroller (e.g. PIC16 or PIC18) should be the solution with lowest cost and board area utilization.
