This section describes the FPGA load.

Loading the FPGA

The FPGA on the SmartNIC must be loaded when the host boots, so the SmartNIC can be assigned addresses in the host memory map. The FPGA is loaded automatically with an image from the flash memory on the SmartNIC.

Image at power up

The primary image is loaded at power-up of the host, but if loading of this image fails, then the secondary image is loaded instead.
