Program Flash directly

Hello everybody,

 

I can't find the Information how to program a Flash device directly. Maybe I didn't find the correct document, whatever. Hopefully someone can help me.

 

So what do I want to do?
I want to program a spi-Flash via a spi-bus directly, not indirectly through a fpga. Is it enough to create a mcs-file and write this file into the Flash?

 

Thanks in advance,

lei

Re: Program Flash directly

Hi Lei,

 

Which is the flash you planned to use and what is the programming tool you will use to program i.e impact or vivado programmer?

note that impact 11.4 was the last tool to support direct flash programming and you will need to check the impact help of 11.4 to see the supported flashes for direct programming

Vivado flash programming doesnt support direct programming
