2.8.6. Device Service

The device service supports device-level actions.


You can use the device service with Tcl scripting to perform device programming.

set device_index 0 ; #Device index for target
set device [lindex [get_service_paths device] $device_index]
set sof_path [file join project_path output_files project_name.sof]
device_download_sof $device $sof_path

To program, all you need are the device service path and the file system path to a .sof. Ensure that no other service (e.g. master service) is open on the target device or else the command fails. Afterwards, you may do the following to check that the design linked to the device is the same one programmed:

device_get_design $device
