Feature Description

In this section

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.

Style Conventions

Bold typeface is used for names of, for instance, user interface elements and software components.

Italic typeface is used for replaceable text.

Monospaced typeface is used for code, commands and file names.
