What configuration file format should I use to program a supported parallel flash device prior to board installation for Active Parallel configuration of supported devices?

Environment

BUILT IN - ARTICLE INTRO SECOND COMPONENT
Description

To program a supported parallel flash device prior to board installation for Active Parallel configuration you should use a Raw Binary File (.rbf) to pre-program the flash device. The data in the RBF file must be stored starting at byte offset 0x20000 (or 16-bit word address 0x10000) in the supported flash device as this is where the Active Parallel configuration engine begins reading configuration data.
