Programming with .ips and .ekp files in command line

Hello,

 

I have a JTAG device and am trying to program it through the command line. I have previously programmed using a .pof through:

./quartus_pgm -m jtag -o "p;/path/bitstream.pof@1"

 

I would now like to program an encrypted bitstream, along with the .ips and .ekp files.

I have these files:

  • pins.ips
  • key.ekp
  • encrypted_bitsream.pof

 

I believe these are the individual commands for adding the key and programming the bitstream:

./quartus_pgm -k -m jtag -o "p;/path/key_file.ekp@1"

./quartus_pgm m jtag -o "p;/path/encrypted_bitsream.pof@1"

 

I cannot find documentation for adding the .ips file. Could someone help?

Should these 3 commands be sequential or combined in command line?

 

Thanks!

You may take a look and see if this is applicable:

Hi Fakhrul,

 

Thanks for the response. That is the document I used to come up with the programming commands above. I still have the following questions:

 

How to add the .ips file?

Should these 3 commands be sequential or combined in command line?

 

Thanks

Hi GDagi1,


Here's the response I received from the internal teams:


According to https://www.intel.com/content/www/us/en/docs/programmable/683865/current/executing-ips-file.html, the IPS file must be programmed along with the .pof file. You can convert this combined file to .jam and then use quartus_jli to execute.
