Each Preloader or Bootloader image occupies an integer number of blocks. A block is the smallest entity that can be erased, so updates to a particular boot image do not impact the other images.

For example for Cyclone® V SoC and Arria® V SoC, a single Preloader image has a maximum size of 64 KB. But it the NAND block is 128 KB, then the Preloader images will need to be located at 128 KB intervals.
