G.1. General procedure

The general procedure to load an image is:

  1. Follow the instructions in the Versatile CD Installation Guide to install the software and data files on your hard disk.

  2. Set up the baseboard and Logic Tile as described in Setting up the baseboard.

  3. Connect RealView ICE to the JTAG connector or use a USB cable to connect a PC to the USB config port. See JTAG debugger and USB config support.

  4. Place the baseboard in configuration mode (Config switch ON) and power on the development system.

  5. Locate the board file (.brd ) that matches your configuration. See Board files.

    The baseboard is shipped with multiplexed AXI connectivity in place for the tile site but without an image for any specific Logic Tile loaded into the configuration flash. You must load a Logic Tile FPGA image into the configuration flash before you can use the baseboard with a Logic Tile. Refer to the application note for your system configuration for specific instructions. If you change the type of Logic Tile, you must also load a new specific image.

    The image file for your configuration also includes a Boot Monitor image for NOR flash. You can also load the Boot Monitor code separately without reloading the FPGA and PLD images, see Loading Boot Monitor into NOR flash.

  6. Run the progcards utility and load the image files into the FPGAs. See Upgrading your hardware). The board file selects the image files to load. Board files have a .brd extension.
