preloader

hi all 

1. What is the relationship between the preloader and the normal configure file(jic & pof(both hw and fw)? 

2. Is there some documents to introduce this problem? 

 

Thanks

The preloader is usually used to load u-boot. 

 

You can find a pretty good description of the boot process at: http://xillybus.com/tutorials/u-boot-image-altera-soc

it is totally different stuff as the preloader or uboot is for the arm MCU power up required files, where the POF file you mention is more at FGPA purpose. 

what are you trying to design actually?
