14.5,14.6 SDK Bootgen - '-split' option to generate separate files for boot image does not work


14.5 and 14.6 Bootgen has been improved to handle security (AES and RSA).

The -split option needs to be re-implemented and it is currently not included in 14.5 and 14.6 Bootgen.


The workaround is to use:

  • 14.4 Bootgen for applications that need the -split option.
  • 14.5/14.6 Bootgen for applications that require security (AES and/or RSA).

If you need the -split option in a secure flow, please contact Xilinx support.

Xilinx Engineering is working to reinstate the -split option.
