G.2.1. Naming conventions for board files

The file name of a board file identifies the PCB, Logic Tile, all programmable devices, and revision. Using the board file eliminates the need to load several individual image files. All file names are in lower case with an underscore character separating the fields:

appnote_boardname_number_core_endian_buildn_devicelist.brd

where:

appnote

The Application Note related to this board file.

boardname_number

The name and number identify a specific development board. For example, eb_140c is for the Emulation Baseboard that uses PCB board HBI-140C.

Note

The full board number is HBI-XXXXR, this is abbreviated to just the significant digits and revision, for example, HBI-0140C becomes 140C.

core

The name of the core that is used with this configuration. For example, cortex-a8 identifies the Cortex-A8 processor.

Caution

Ensure that you use the board file that matches your system configuration.

buildn

The build number. The number n increments from 0

devicelist

The name of the programmable devices that are specified in this file.
