1.5. Flash Memory Programming Files
You can program the flash memory, EPCS, EPCQ, and EPCQ-L using the JTAG interface or Active Serial interface. Depending on the interface, you need to generate either a JTAG indirect configuration (.jic) file or a raw programming data (.rpd) file.
|Programming Interface||Flash Memory Programming File Used||Description|
|JTAG Interface||.jic||The .jic file instantiates the Serial Flash Loader IP core in the design to form a bridge between the flash and the JTAG Interface.|
|Active Serial Interface||.rpd||Programming data is transferred directly between the flash and download cable.|
To update the application image only, you can do either one of the following:
- Recompile the .jic file and choose new application image only in the convert programming file tool.
- Generate the .rpd file and program the EPCQ-L with ASMI IP or external controller.
