I am designing around the I210 and I have a question about programming the Flash and the internal NVM. It is my understanding that I need access to documents 348742 and 513655 to answer my question, but I am still waiting on privileged access and this design is time sensitive.
I am confident that by the time the board arrives I will have access to the documents, but I need to know now if there are any hardware considerations for programming? Can all of the programming for flash and internal NVM be accomplished over PCIe or are other interfaces required?
Thank you for contacting the Intel Embedded Community.
