Merging multiple bitstreams into one

Hi, currently we have 3 bitstreams that we program individually into an SPI flash memory, each one starting on its own offset. We would like to see the possibility of merging the 3 bitstreams into one (with each one again with its same offset in the memory) so that we only have to program it once.

 

Thanks in advance.

Are these partitial bitstreams? what do you mean merge into one? 

Or, are you taking about multi-boot?

Yes indeed we are talking about multi-boot :) We want to merge them all into one so that we only need to program one file instead of 3 separate ones.

Those documents talk about multibooting, which we already can do. To explain better what we want, this is our current setup the addresses are just for the example):

 

1. Program bitstream1 at address 0x1000

2. Program bitstream2 at address 0x2000

3. Program bitstream3 at address 0x3000

 

What we want is the following:

 

1. Merge bitstream1, bitstream2 and bitstream3 into a new bistreamMerged, respecting the addresses.

2. Program bitstreamMerged at address 0x1000

 

Theoretically the addresses where the bitstreams are in both implementations will end up in the same place.
