1.2.8. Generating Initial RSU Image

To convert .sof files to one .jic/.rpd files and to generate the initial RSU image, follow these steps:

On the File menu, click Convert Programming File and select the details as shown below:
  • Programming File type: JTAG Indirect Configuration File (.jic).
  • Configuration Device: <Select the Configuration Device used in your board>.
  • Mode: Select either Active Serial/Active Serial x4.
  • File_name: Set the file name and your desired location.
  • Optional:
