Hi,

I am sorry, the flash programmer is no longer supported. Please generate the .jic file to program the flash.

Please check the attached tutorial for how to generate a .jic file and how to program a flash device.

Hi,

OK thanks. another quick question, while I'm converting sof2flash it ask for start address, should I put the start address that the file should be in the flash or to put 0x0 as a default ?

I'm asking because I've also elf2flash as well and few more files to program in to flash.

Thanks a lot.

Hi,

A continue to my question above about the base address while creating sof2flash or elf2 flash, I'm asking this because while programming the files with Nois2-flash-programmmer it also required the base address again.

Tnx,

Avi

Hi,

Just to clarify, the FLASH I'm using is Parallel flash form Micron MT28EW connected directly to FPGA.

Hi,

If you are using a parallel flash device it is simple. You need to create a PFL project (Parallel Flash Loader) to make the FPGA acts as a bridge between the computer and the flash device.

You can simply check the attached tutorial to create a PFL project.
