Hi,

What is the difference between the Configuration scheme in <Device and Pin Options> and the Mode in <Convert Programming File>?

Choosing the config scheme in Device and Pin options specifies how the programming file will be generated when the Assembler is run from a regular compile.  Choosing a different scheme in CPF lets you convert an existing file to a different file format or scheme if needed.

Hi , thank you for your answer,

 

I want to describe my question in detail once.

My configuration method is to choose Active Serial Mode.
And when I try to compare the programming files with different options.
I found that no matter how I choose Device and Pin options(Configuration scheme) it doesn't affect the content.
As shown in the picture below,

Hi,



.rpd file is use to keep the design only. It does not keep the configuration mode. .rpd file will be different if you use different design.


To see the different when changing configuration mode, you will need to see from .pof file because .pof keep the configuration mode.


Hope this help!

Aiman

Hi, thank you for your answer,

 

But I use the same design, just make different choices of mode in the Convert Programming File, then the content of .rpd will be a little different, as shown below,

Isn't this a difference in Configuration mode?

 

Thank you so much.
