Ultrascale+ Boot from Flash Memory with Minimal FSBL

Hello, I am trying to boot an Ultrascaele+ RFSoC device from flash memory with only a mininal FSBL. In other words, similar to the answer in : 

https://www.xilinx.com/support/answers/70148.html

Where the answer was that a FSBL was indeed required. 

I would like to do this for Ultrascale+ RFSoC device. The board employed is a Hi-Tech Globabl RFSoC board.

So my specific question is do I have to specify just a FSBL (no application) in Vitis and then program the flash from Vitis? Or is there something else involved. 

Any help is most appreciated.

James

Hi @jbonanno1 ,

you need to create a boot image (FSBL+Bitstream) and then program it into flash using AR#70148. Basically when the device powered up the PS will boots up first with FSBL and then FSBL will configure the PL with bitstream from boot image.

Please check this: https://www.xilinx.com/support/documentation/sw_manuals/xilinx2020_2/ug1209-embedded-design-tutorial.pdf

 

Best Regards,
