Hi Sasi,

How to generate preloader ? 

--- Quote End ---  

 

The Cyclone V and Arria V Preloader build flow 

• Copies the generic preloader source code into <bsp directory>/ubootsocfpga 

• Copies the generated BSP files and hardware handoff files to the source directory in <bsp_directory /uboot-socfpga/board/altera/socfpga _<device> 

• Configures the compiler tools to target an SoC FPGA 

• Compiles the source files in <bsp directory>/uboot-socfpga with the userspecified cross compiler (specified in the BSP settings) and stores the generated preloader binary files in <bsp_directory>/uboot - socfpga/spl 

• Converts the preloader binary file to a preloader image, <bsp_directory>/preloader- mkpimage.bin, with the mkpimage tool 

 

The makefile contains the following targets: 

• make all – compiles the preloader 

• make clean – deletes preloader-mkpimage.bin from the <bsp directory> 

• make clean-all – deletes <bsp directory>, including the source files in the 

directory

BSP settings, which can be accessed from either the Graphical User Interface application (bsp-editor) or  

From the command line tools (bsp-create-settings, bsp-update-settings, bsp-query-settings). 

 

For detailed steps refer below link.

Hi Sasi, 

Go to altera download page and download the embedded design suite for your quartus version. Start an embedded shell.Here you can call the bsp-editor.
