Flash Programming Tool

Hi,

 

I started a project last year with Vivado 2017.2.  With that version, the FLASH programming utility only required a .bit file.  Later versions, such as 2017.4 and 2018.2 want an FSBL file as well.  That doesn't make sense to me because the bit generation part of the utility also asks for an FSBL file.  So, I have been unsuccessful at getting the FLASH programming utility in the later versions to work.  Can someone please explain what I am doing wrong or point me to a document that describes what steps are necessary?

 

Thanks,
Dan

Hi @dps

 

I believe you are performing configuration for Zynq FPGAs.

Starting with the 2017.3 release, Vivado Hardware Manager and XSDK require that you specify an FSBL to program a QSPI flash.

Check this AR#70148 for more information.

Hi Brushan,

 

I followed the steps outlined in the AR that you referenced but still have not been successful in programming my Zynq device.

 

Is there any more detailed information or examples that you could point me to?

 

Thanks,
Dan
