I have a design that is presently booting from EPCS via the Boot ROM. I would like to change this to boot/start from (onchip) RAM.As part of this change, I really would like to regain the 1K block of memory that is not the unused BOOT ROM. Is there a way to tell SOPC Builder or Quartus to eliminate the Boot ROM? Or is my only option to create my own custom version of the EPCS controller? TIA, -dave
AFAIK the EPCS controller without the bootloader is just a regular SPI master. You could just put an SPI master, and then you just have to convince the system to install the EPCS driver anyway, or copy them yourself.
