Is there a way to erase a MAX10 via ByteBlaster JTAG?

Sometimes it is of interest to reset a MAX10 to its erased state, that is, with CONFIG_DONE low all the time after power-up.   ​But the Progammer Tool only has a check box for "Program/Configure".  In a related vein, what happens if a .pof file is corrupt?  Is the device left blank or what?

Hi Fred, The Programmer automatically executes the erase operation before programming the device. Please refer the "2.3. Configuration Details" from the 'Intel MAX10 FPGA Configuration User Guide', https://www.intel.com/content/dam/www/programmable/us/en/pdfs/literature/hb/max-10/ug_m10_config.pdf If a .pof is corrupted then It will not configure the FPGA untill user is not deciding whether to reconfigure the FPGA by strobing the nCONFIG pin low or ignore the error. Refer the 2.2.3.1. & 2.2.3.2. here device should be empty but I am not sure. please let me know if you have different concern. Regards, Vikas
