Document Table of Contents Step 2: Hardware Hand-off Files

Prior to generating the boot loader, the HPS hand-off files are needed. The hand-off files are created during "Step 1: Compiling the FPGA Design" and are saved in the hps_isw_handoff folder.

The HPS hand-off files contain the FPGA hardware design information (as XML files) and are used to generate the required boot loader device tree for proper FPGA hardware initialization and run-time access.
