1.3. Generic Flash Programmer Operation

The Generic Flash Programmer facilitates the generation of appropriate secondary programming files, with definition of the connected flash memory device, and the corresponding Program, Erase, Verify, Blank-Check, and Examine flows. You can then add the generated programming files to the Intel® Quartus® Prime Programmer for correct flash programming implementation in hardware.

You can access settings and controls for the Generic Flash Programmer from the Programmer, Programming File Generator ( Intel® Agilex™ and Intel® Stratix® 10 designs), or Convert Programming File dialog box ( Intel® Arria® 10 and Intel® Cyclone® 10 GX designs).

These user interfaces allow you to generate required programming files, define the flash programming device, and implement your flash programming flow.

The generic flash programming flow for the Programming File Generator varies from the Convert Programming File flow. Refer to the following configuration steps for the method that you use.
