5.5.1. Generating the Initial RSU Image

Follow below steps to generate the initial RSU Image.

For generic applications, you can generate the initial image using the .sof file.

For security application when you need to generate a signed or encrypted .rbf file, you need to first generate .rbf file from a .sof file, and only then generate the initial RSU image from the .rbf file. Refer to Intel® Stratix® 10 Device Security User Guide for more information about the generation of the signed or encrypted .rbf file.

Important: You must update the decision firmware (CMF) in the Intel® Quartus® Prime software version 21.1 or later if you want to use an RSU image generated with Intel® Quartus® Prime software version 20.4 or prior along with any factory or application image(s) generated in Intel® Quartus® Prime software version 21.1 or later. For more information, refer to Updating Decision Firmware.
