Generating Bitstream for HSFPX002

HDL design needs to be converted to bitstream before it can be programmed to FPGA. Once the HDL is synthesized, it is easy to create a binary bitstream out of it. The bitstream can be generated for HSFPX002 in Vivado by following the steps below:

Step 1: It is recommended to generate .bin bitstream file along with .bit bitstream file. Right Click on “Bitstream Settings”.

Step 2: Select “-bin_file*” option in the dialog window and Click “OK”.

Step 3: Finally click “Generate Bitstream”.

Configuring HSFPX002 Module

Configuring HSFPX002 Module Using JTAG

To configure HSFPX002 Module using JTAG, a carrier board is required such as Numato Lab’s HSFPX00X board which features a JTAG connector which facilitates easy reprogramming of SRAM and on-board SPI flash through JTAG programmer like “XILINX Platform Cable USB”. Programming HSFPX002 using JTAG requires “XILINX Vivado Hardware Manager” software which is bundled with XILINX Vivado Design Suite. To program the SPI flash we need a “.mcs/.bin” file that needs to be generated from the “.bit” file. Steps for generating “.mcs/.bin” file are as below. Programming FPGA SRAM does not require a “.mcs/.bin” file to be generated.

Programming FPGA using Vivado

Step 1: By using JTAG cable, connect Xilinx platform cable USB to HSFPX002 and power it up.

Step 2: Open Vivado project and open the target by clicking on the “Open Target” in “Open Hardware Manager” in the “Program and Debug” section of the Flow Navigator window. Select “Auto Connect”.

Step 3: If the device is detected successfully, to program the device, right click on the target device “xc7a200t_0” and select “Program Device” as shown below.

Step 4: In the dialog window which opens up, Vivado automatically chooses correct bitstream file if the design was synthesized, implemented and if the bitstream was generated successfully. If needed, browse to the bitstream which needs to be programmed to FPGA. Finally, click “Program”.

Generating Memory Configuration File for HSFPX002 using Vivado

The screenshots shown in the following steps are captured from the Vivado Design Suite 2018.2.

Step 1: Open Xilinx Vivado Hardware Manager. Connect the board, click “Generate Memory Configuration File….” from “Tools” menu. “Write Memory Configuration File” pop up window will open.

Step 2: Select the ‘Format’ and Configuration Memory Part as shown below. Choose the format as MCS/BIN/HEX depending on your requirement. Now, click “OK”.

Step 3: Browse to the path where you wish to save the Configuration File and type the file name as “sample.bin” (or any name as per your wish/requirement) to save the memory configuration file (the format of the file may change depending on your “Format”). Select the “Load bitstream files” under the ”Options” tab and browse to the “.bit” file we already generated then click “OK” to generate memory configuration file.

Programming QSPI Flash using Vivado

A .bin or .mcs file is required for programming HSFPX002’s onboard QSPI flash.

Step 1: Open Vivado project and open the target by clicking on the “Open Target” in “Open Hardware Manager” in the “Program and Debug” section of the Flow Navigator window. Select “Auto Connect”.

Step 2: If the device is detected successfully, it will be displayed as shown in image below. To add Configuration Memory Device, right click on the target device “xc7a200t_0” and select “Add Configuration Memory Device” as shown below.

Step 3: Select the memory device “m25ql01g-spi-x1_x2_x4”, then click OK.

Step 4: Browse to the working .bin file or the .mcs file (whichever applicable) and click OK to program as shown below. If programming is successful, a confirmation message will be displayed.
