How does the Parallella boot the PS and PL via the bit.bin ?

Postby saddyq » Tue Jul 15, 2014 8:59 pm

The quick start explains that we need the parallella.bit.bin file for programming.
This is ok if the zynq is in SMP configuration, it has a single bootloader and a single bit file , what happens when the zynq is in AMP mode where in each arm core has its own program.
How do we load that ? Can we simply write the below to the bif file and it will be correctly executed/loaded by the paralllella?
the_ROM_image:
{

[bootloader] amp_fsbl.elf
system.bit
u-boot.elf
app_cpu1.elf

//write start vector address 0xFFFFFFF0 with 0xFFFFFF00
//This load address triggers fsbl to continue
[load = 0xFFFFFFF0] cpu1_bootvec.bin
}
