NAME

fpga_load - Xorcom Astribank (xpp) firmware tool  

SYNOPSIS

fpga_load [-g] [-r] [-v] -D {/proc/bus/usb|/dev/bus/usb}/BUS/DEV

fpga_load [-g] [-v] -D {/proc/bus/usb|/dev/bus/usb}/BUS/DEV -I firmware.hex [-b dump.bin] [-i]

fpga_load -h

 

DESCRIPTION

fpga_load loads the FPGA firmware to the Xorcom Astribank device. The syntax resembles that of fxload(8).

 

OPTIONS

-b dump.bin
Before writing firmware, bump the processed binary file to dump.bin.

-D DEVICE

Required. The device to read from/write to. On modern UDEV-based system this is usually /dev/bus/usb/bus_num/device_num, where bus_num and device_num are the first two numbers in the output of lsusb(8). On older systems that use usbfs, it is usually /proc/bus/usb/bus_num/device_num.

-r

Reset the Astribank and renumerate its USB connection to power on product ID.

-g

Dump all eeprom data to standard output.

-I fireware_file

The firmware file to write to the device.

-i

Show information about the firmware file (valid only with -I option). Example:

       ./FPGA_1151.hex: Version=3297 Checksum=58270

In particular, the calculated checksum should match the output of sum(1) on the binary firmware file generated by the -b option.

-v

Increase verbosity. May be used multiple times.

-h

Displays usage message.
