Each Intel® Cyclone® 10 LP device in your system requires one factory image.

The factory image is a user-defined configuration image that contains logic to perform the following:

  • Process errors based on the status provided by the dedicated remote system upgrade circuitry.
  • Communicate with the remote host, receives new application images, and stores the images in the local non-volatile memory device.
  • Determine the application image to load into the Intel® Cyclone® 10 LP device.
  • Enable or disable the user watchdog timer and loads its time-out value.
  • Instruct the dedicated remote system upgrade circuitry to start a reconfiguration cycle.

In AS configuration scheme, when an Intel® Cyclone® 10 LP is first powered, it loads the factory configuration located at address boot_address[23:0] = 24b'0. Intel recommends that you store the factory configuration image for your system at boot address 24b'0, which corresponds to the start address location 0×000000 in the serial configuration device. A factory configuration image is a bitstream for the Intel® Cyclone® 10 LP device in your system that is programmed during production and is the fall-back image when an error occurs. This image is stored in non-volatile memory and is never updated or modified using remote access.
