To configure a CEPC to download a run-time image, you must establish software connections between Platform Builder on your development workstation and the CEPC. You can then download, debug, and view run-time images on your CEPC.

Hardware and Software Assumptions

  • You are familiar configuring settings in your hardware's basic input/output system (BIOS).
  • You have set up your CEPC hardware based on the features you want to evaluate. For more information, see How to Set Up a CEPC.
  • Both your development workstation and CEPC have floppy disk drives.
  • You have a blank 3.5-inch 1.44 MB floppy disk for creating a boot floppy disk.
  • Your CEPC has a supported debug Ethernet card. For more information, see Choosing an Ethernet Card for a CEPC.
  • You have built a CEPC run-time image. For more information, see How to Configure and Build a Run-Time Image for a CEPC.
