configuration bin file via MCU.

Jump to solution

I was doing project by ISE. (Spartan-6)

When I did configurate bin file via MCU, and cofiguration time was about 15 seconds.

After I changed FPGA chip (Spartan-6 to Artix-7), I made bin file and configuration via MCU.

First, bin file size increased too much(800KB to 3700KB)
Second cofiguration time took more than 4 times.(about 60 seconds)

Is there way to  reduce bin file size? or anything else to reduce configuration time via MCU?

Thank you.

回复: configuration bin file via MCU.

Size of config file for different FPGA chip will sure be different. 

To reduce config time, you can try: 1. compress bin file; 2. use parallel port rather than single data port, e.g. use BPIx16, or SPIx4, or SMAP.

You can learn more details on this from the Configuration User Guide.
