1.1. Benefits of Using CvP

The CvP configuration scheme has the following advantages:
  • Reduces system costs by reducing the size of the local flash device that stores the configuration data.
  • Allows update of the FPGA without reprogramming the flash.
  • Enables dynamic core updates without requiring a system power down. CvP allows you to update the FPGA core fabric through the PCIe* link without a host restart or FPGA full chip reinitialization.
  • Provides a simpler software model for configuration. A smart host can use the PCIe* protocol and the application topology to initialize and update the FPGA core fabric.
  • Allows quick update of your design for changing application loads.
