3.2.7. Serial Flash Memory Layout
Serial flash devices store the configuration data in sections. The first stage boot loader location depends on the selected serial flash memory layout.
The following diagram illustrates sections of a non-HPS Intel® Agilex™ configuration data mapping in a serial flash device. The non-HPS bitstreams do not include first stage boot loader (FSBL). Refer to Intel® Agilex™ SoC FPGA Bitstream Sections of the HPS Technical Reference Manual for more information about flash memory layout for HPS devices.
HPS Case with FPGA First Option:
HPS Case with HPS First Option and Dual Flash:
If you use a third-party programmer to program an .rpd, ensure that the configuration data is stored starting from address 0 of the serial flash device. If you use .jic or .pof files, the Intel® Agilex™ Programmer automatically programs the configuration data starting from address 0 of the serial flash device.
