Document Table of Contents SOF Manager

The SOF Manager is in the JTAG Chain Configuration pane.

With the SOF Manager you can attach multiple .sof files to a single .stp file. This attachment allows you to move the .stp file to a different location, either on the same computer or across a network, without including the attached .sof separately.

The SOF Manager also ensures compatibility between any attached .sof files and the current .stp file settings automatically, as Ensure Compatibility Between .stp and .sof Files describes.

To attach a new .sof in the .stp file, click the Attach SOF File icon .

Figure 89.  SOF Manager

As you switch between configurations in the Data Log, you can extract the .sof that is compatible with that configuration.

To download the new .sof to the FPGA, click the Program Device icon in the SOF Manager, after ensuring that the configuration of your .stp is compatible with the design to program into the target device.
