This is probably an already asked question with a fairly straightforward answer but if there is one I missed it or can't find it. After finishing an embedded design in XPS, and the c code for it in SDK, how do you program a board so that the design initializes each time the board boots up, and is not deleted from memory? Specifically I'm working with a Spartan 6 LX9 board.
If utilizing BRAM, is that volatile memory which won't hold the code or data after power is disconnected from the board? If that is the case, if the Code, Data, Heap and stack are placed in the LPDDR memory on the board is that sufficient in that when the board is again attached to a computer, that is the program which will begin running?
I understand the process for working with nonvolatile memory for a project solely worked on in ISE which ends with only a bitstream, but I'm a bit unclear on the end-process for an embedded design.
