Application Note 21
This application note describes a method that can reduce the programming time when the flash device to be programmed is connected to an FPGA. This method requires some basic FPGA development knowledge. Two examples are provided as a guide using Altera and Xilinx parts showing how this can be implemented in each case.
These examples can be used as a starting point for your own application. Please download the zip file from here.
