2.3.2 Loading a prebuilt image onto the MPS2+ platform

To load the prebuilt Cortex®-M3 DesignStart™ Eval image, follow these steps:

  1. Copy all the contents in the following directory and paste them in the root directory of the attached V2M_MPS2 drive:


    You might want to manually modify and merge the contents for certain configuration files. Alternatively, you can restore the existing configuration files from the /Recovery directory. The affected configuration files are:
    • <install_dir>/boards/Recovery/config.txt
    • <install_dir>/boards/Recovery/MB/HBI0263C/board.txt
  2. Eject the V2M_MPS2 volume from your computer to unmount the drive.
  3. Power up the MPS2+ platform using the ON/OFF/Soft RESET push button shown in Figure 2-1 MPS2+ platform. The LEDs flash in sequence to indicate that the new BIOS is being downloaded (this only occurs the first time when the BIOS is updated), and that the prebuilt image is being loaded onto the platform. Then, the color LCD touch screen shows an 'ARM® IoT Subsystem for Cortex-M' splash screen. Simultaneously, if you have configured the UART to run a self-test program, then the debug UART terminal shows the self-test menu for Application Note AN511.

If you want to run the self-test program, see the ARM® Cortex®-M3 DesignStart™ Eval FPGA User Guide.
