as more and more customers are getting their Sample Packs so I decided to pre release the standalone programming utility for the board, available for immediate download
this has fully working base functionality for FPGA config and Flash programming.
both for FPGA and Flash there is no need to worry about startup clock and for flash there is also no need to invoke and promgen or anything
same .BIT files can be used for FPGA and Flash, the startup clock is automatically fixed to either JTAG of CCLK and the preparation for flash is also automatic startup clock auto-fix is now also supported in compressed bitstream (CRC is properly recalculated)
only Cable III is supported for the moment, next releases may have wider hardware support included
I have tried hard to also test out Xilinx suggested Flash programming for the sample pack (EDK, XMD, flashwriter.tcl) - I have failed so far, also completly failed have all attempts to use universal scan for the flash programming.
nahitafu is using MITOU JTAG tool for flash programming of the sample pack but as that tool is not free and has no eval so our Flash programming utility for the Sample Pack is the first freely available and proven working solution to reflash the strataflash on the Sample Pack board.
the base functionality of the tool is FREE of charge, there is no registration required, just download unzip and get start
