5.5.2. Generating an Application Image
quartus_pfg -c fpga.sof application.rpd -o mode=ASX4 -o bitswap=ON
Alternatively, you can use the Intel® Quartus® Prime Pro Edition Programming File Generator to generate the .rpd image by completing the following procedure:
- On the File menu, click Programming File Generator.
- Select Intel® Agilex™ from the Device family drop-down list.
- Select the configuration mode from the Configuration mode drop-down list. The current Intel® Quartus® Prime only supports remote system update feature in Active Serial x4.
- On the Output Files tab, assign the output directory and file name.
- Select the output file type.
- Raw Programming File (.rpd)
- By default, the .rpd file type is little-endian, if you are using a third-party programmer that does not support the little-endian format. Set the Bit swap to On to generate the .rpd file in big endian format.
Note: The rsu1.tcl script that Intel provides performs the bit swap operation. Consequently, if you are using this script, set Bit swap to Off.
- On the Input Files tab, click Add Bitstream. Change the Files of type to SRAM Object File (*.sof). Then, select application image .sof file and click Open.

- Click Generate to generate the remote system update programming files. You can now program the flash memory. You can save the configuration in a .pfg file for later use.
