Hi, 

 

we are using Arria 10 FPGA DEVICE "10AX057N2F40E2SG", we needed to use Remote system update feature for our custom board.


From the intel design store, there are two reference design modules.

But from rocketboards website it is stated as

https://www.rocketboards.org/foswiki/Documentation/RemoteSystemUpdateCompatibility

"The Remote System Update (RSU) is a feature available for Stratix 10 and Agilex FPGA devices"

please Clarify whether Arria10 will support or NO!

 

 

Thanks,

Rajesh

Hi Jingyang, Teh


From the given link below, There is an example design for RSU.

 

 

https://www.intel.com/content/www/us/en/design-example/714766/arria-10-intel-fpga-remote-system-update-via-pci-express.html

which is posted in 20-01-2021.



From your statement 

"Sorry to inform you that the Remote System Update is only for Stratix 10 and Agilex 7 devices currently"

is intel not supporting now this feature for Arria10 devices???


 

Thanks,

Rajesh

HI Rajesh


Sorry for the wrong information.

There is indeed a Remote update IP for the Arria10.

So far here are the document that I am able to find out related tot he IP

https://www.intel.com/content/www/us/en/docs/programmable/683695/18-0/avalon-mm-in-remote-update-core.html


Please give me some time to try out the example for the Arria10 to better help you out.

Hi Rajesh


Sorry for dragging the case too long.

Update on this case so far, I am still having problems with the example design.

Hi Rajesh


Before you start the steps of flashing the application image did you flash the ru.jic image to setup the flash layout?
