184.108.40.206. Generating a .rbf for Partial Reconfiguration from a .pmsf file
After generating the .pmsf file, you convert the .pmsf file into a .rbf file with the Convert Programming Files dialog box.
To generate the .rbf for Partial Reconfiguration:
- In the Convert Programming Files dialog box, in the Programming file type field, select Raw Binary File for Partial Reconfiguration (.rbf).
- In the File name field, specify the output file name.
- In the Input files to convert field, add input files to convert.
You can add only one .pmsf file.
- Select the .pmsf, and click Properties.
The PMSF File Properties dialog box appears.
- Make your selection either by turning on or turning off the following options:
For more information about these options refer to Design Planning for Partial Reconfiguration in Intel® Quartus® Prime Standard Edition User Guide: Partial Reconfiguration .
- Compression option—This option enables compression on Partial Reconfiguration bitstream. If you turn on this option, then you must turn on the Enable decompression during Partial Reconfiguration option.
- Enable SCRUB mode option—The default of this option is based on AND/OR mode. This option is valid only when Partial Reconfiguration masks in your design are not overlapped vertically. Otherwise, you cannot generate the .rbf for Partial Reconfiguration.
- Write memory contents option—This option is a workaround for initialized RAM/ROM in a Partial Reconfiguration region.
- Click OK.
- Click Generate.
