Compact Flash

Please, I would appreciate advice:
I am developing a project with the Virtex 6 ML605 card. My binary file would like to save it in the CompactFlash and from there it will be executed in every FPGA boot. I would be grateful if you would instruct me in the necessary documentation to achieve my goals if possible.

Re: Compact Flash

The Compact Flash card is used indirectly by the Virtex-6 for configuration. An interceding chip--System ACE controller--reads the CF and programs the FPGA. 

I assume you've checked out the board's documentation: https://www.xilinx.com/products/boards-and-kits/ek-v6-ml605-g.html

This is a good place to start: https://www.xilinx.com/support/documentation/white_papers/wp151.pdf

You should also review the V6 configuration guide: https://www.xilinx.com/support/documentation/user_guides/ug360.pdf 

And then there's this: https://www.xilinx.com/support/documentation/data_sheets/ds080.pdf
