Booting up Kintex -7 FPGA from flash memory

Hi All,

 

We are working on a project for which we are currently programming the Kintex-7 FPGA from the computer. Eventually, we would need to load our program to flash memory and make the FPGA boot up from the flash memory itself. I was able to find documentation that relates to programming the flash through SPI using iMPACT tools. However, when I when to download it, Xilinx recommended that it was best to use the Vivado itself for Kintex 7. Could you please point me to the document to reference, or the procedure to do the programming and boot up from flash?

 

Thanks!
