Light programmer for manufactory

Hi everybody,

I am currently looking for a software tool to program the device (xc7a50t). I do it with Vivado, but Vivado requires a lot of RAM memory and is slow to open with a old computer.

For developement it is ok, but nom for mass production we need a simple software tool to configure the FPGA.

Is there something available running on a basic computer?

Thank you a lot.

For a manufacturing environment, all you need is the "Lab Edition" of the Vivado toolset.  You can select the "Lab Edition" during the initial software installation.  Check out UG973 and UG908.  Search "Lab Edition" for more info.
