Can I configure Cyclone V GT from Parallel Flash?

Honored Contributor II

I would like to use Parallel Flash Loader with Cyclone V GT (with PCIe). 

The Cyclone V GT FPGA Development Board using the MAX V CPLD 5M2210 as System Controller. 

Reading AN-487 it's seem I can connect the Flash device directly to the FPGA and save the CPLD as shown in ug_pfl.pdf, can it be done? 

Is there any other option to configure the FPGA (with the PCIe core) that the PCIe will be ready when the PC is booting? 

Is there any sample design I can use?

Refer to page 241. 

I think you are looking for Configuration via Protocol (CvP) Kindly refer the below link. 


Let me know if this has helped or if you need any further assistance.
