Raw Binary File (.rbf)


A binary file (with the extension .rbf) containing configuration data for use outside the Quartus II software. A Raw Binary File contains the binary equivalent of a Tabular Text File (.ttf).

You can use the Programming Files page of the Device and Pin Options dialog box, which is available from the Device dialog box on the Assignments menu, to direct the Compiler to generate Raw Binary Files containing configuration data for the sequential Passive Parallel Synchronous (PPS), Passive Parallel Asynchronous (PPA), and Passive Serial (PS) configuration schemes for Stratix, Stratix II, Stratix II GX, and Stratix GX devices. You also can generate Raw Binary Files containing configuration data for the Fast Passive Parallel (FPP) configuration scheme for Stratix, Stratix, and Stratix GX devices; and for the PS configuration scheme for Cyclone and Cyclone II devices. The file name of the RBF the Compiler generates is the same as the name of the current Compiler settings

You can also generate Raw Binary Files with the makeprogfile utility, or from previously generated SRAM Object Files (.sof) or Partial Mask SRAM Object Files (.pmsf) with the Convert Programming Files command on the File menu.

When configuring a device in PS configuration scheme, send each byte of data with the LSB first.
