I210 INVM programming


I210-- Flash programming



I have an i210-CS device. For now, the device returns 0x1531 as Device ID apparently because the no external FLASH, so my Linux driver can't probe this device.

I understood that I need to program the initial configuration,


- Does this device includes initial predefined configuration burned on the iNVM during production time (OTP)?

initial configuration isn't automatically loaded from the iNVM?

- Can we also program the iNVM via some external tool? Do we need to do this? What are the available tools? How can I get them? How to program

 Thanks and regards

Hello, @chandru​:


Thank you for contacting Intel Embedded Community.


Could you please clarify if the affected project is your design or a third- party one?


In case that it is a third-party device, could you please inform the name of the manufacturer, its model, the part number, and where its documentation is stated?


On the other hand, could you please let us know how many units of the project related to this circumstance have been manufactured? How many are affected? Could you please give the failure rate? Also, could you please list the sources that you have used to design it and if it has been verified by Intel?


We are waiting for your answer to these questions.


Best regards,
