1.5. Boot Examples

This chapter presents several boot examples that can be run on the Cyclone V Development Kit:

  • Boot from SD/MMC - using raw and FAT partitions
  • Boot from QSPI
  • Boot from FPGA

In all the examples, the Preloader is used to load and run a simple bare-metal application. The boot flow is depicted in the following figure:
