Hey @muuu

 

Check out XAPP694 for the theory and UG380 for the details on the Spartan-6 Configuration.

 

The basic concept is that you store the user data in a location where it doesn't interfere with the configuration bitstream and make sure that you have some way to access the flash memory after configuration (there are several solutions to that).

 

Hope this helps,

Herbert
