Is JTAG the only one way to configure bitstream ?

Jump to solution

HI Friends,

 

1)  Is JTAG the only one way to configure bitstream ? 

2) Can we configure using Ethernet ?

3) please let me know all possible ways ?

 

NOTE: Any help or suggestions are highly appreciated.

Hi @ssampath

 

There are following ways to configure for 7 series FPGA: 

1. Master Serial

2. Master SPI

3. Master BPI

4. Master SelectMAP

5. JTAG

6. Slave SelectMAP

7. Slave Serial

 

For more details check UG470 (v1.13.1)

 

Similarly for Ultrascale and Ultrascale + FPGA supported config modes check UG570 (v1.9.1)

Master serial mode and Master SelectMAP mode are not recommended for UltraScale Architecture-based FPGAs 

 

Regards,

Bhushan

You can program the FPGA indirect via Ethernet. 

Program the SPI boot flash memory and reboot the FPGA.

This is for instance done with FPGA-Cores.com remote programming tool.

See this Ethernet Cores
