2.1. Configuration Images

In CvP, you split your bitstream into two images: periphery image and core image.

You use the Intel® Quartus® Prime Pro Edition software to generate the images:
  • Periphery image (*.periph.jic) — contains only CvP PCIe core. The entire periphery image is static and cannot be reconfigured. The size of the peripheral image varies across different Intel® Quartus® Prime versions but it will never exceed the recommended QSPI flash size for periphery image (256 Mb).
  • Core image (*.core.rbf) — contains the entire device except the CvP PCIe core. The maximum size of the *.core.rbf file does not exceed the configuration bit stream size for the FPGA configuration stipulated in device datasheet.
