Vivado Hardware Manager - What is the DONE status after loading an Indirect programing design bit file?


Because the DONE = KEEP bitstream option is set in the SPI/BPI .cor designs, the internal done signal (CONFIG_STATUS bit 13) does not drive high.

The startup state machine just moves on without asserting the DONE_pin (CONFIG_STATUS bit 14 = 0).

If you have an external pull-up on the DONE pin on your board you will see DONE_PIN (CONFIG_STATUS bit 14) high.


Below is an example BOOTSTS and STATUS register read after a .cor file design is loaded into the FPGA via JTAG.

The Indirect Programming .cor bit files are located in a ZIP file at the following location: 

<Xilinx install>\Vivado\2016.2\data\xicom\cfgmem

Unzip the bitfile.zip to create the bitfile folder.

INFO: [Labtools 27-2302] Device xcvu190 (JTAG device index = 0) is programmed with a design that has 1 SPI core(s).

Another way to confirm that the COR file design loaded is to use the refresh_hw_device command.

Vivado will report that it detected the BPI or SPI cores as in the following example:

INFO: [Labtools 27-2302] Device xcvu190 (JTAG device index = 0) is programmed with a design that has 1 SPI core(s).
refresh_hw_device [lindex [get_hw_devices] 0]
