Configuration devices can store multiple configuration bitstreams in flash memory, called pages. CFI configuration devices can store up to eight configuration bitstreams. Intel® Hyperflex™ devices can store up to four configuration bitstreams, including the factory image.

In Intel® Hyperflex™ devices, with the remote system update feature enabled, Page represents the parity.

Address Mode The options are:
  • Auto—automatically allocates a block in the flash device to store the data.
  • Block—specify the start and end address of the flash partition.
  • Start—specify the start address of the partition. The tool assigns the end address of the partition based on the input data size.
Start address Specifies the start address of the partition. Only enabled when Address Mode is Block or Start.
End address Specifies the end address of the partition. Only enabled when Address Mode is Block.
