fpgaconf [-hvVn] [-S <segment>] [-B <bus>] [-D <device>] [-F <function>] [PCI_ADDR] <gbs>


fpgaconf configures the FPGA with the accelerator function (AF). It also checks the AF for compatibility with the targeted FPGA and the FPGA Interface Manager (FIM). fpgaconf takes the following arguments:

-h, --help

Prints usage information.

-v, --version

Prints version information and exits.

-V, --verbose

Prints more verbose messages while enumerating and configuring. Can be
requested more than once.

-n, --dry-run

Performs enumeration. Skips any operations with side-effects such as the
actual AF configuration. 

-S, --segment

PCIe segment number of the target FPGA.

-B, --bus

PCIe bus number of the target FPGA.

-D, --device

PCIe device number of the target FPGA. 

-F, --function

PCIe function number of the target FPGA.


Reconfigure the AFU even if it is in use.

fpgaconf enumerates available FPGA devices in the system and selects compatible FPGAs for configuration. If more than one FPGA is compatible with the AF, fpgaconf exits and asks you to be more specific in selecting the target FPGAs by specifying a a PCIe BDF.


fpgaconf my_af.gbs

Program "my_af.gbs" to a compatible FPGA.

fpgaconf -V -B 0x3b my_af.gbs

Program "my_af.gbs" to the FPGA in bus 0x3b, if compatible,
while printing out slightly more verbose information.

fpgaconf 0000:3b:00.0 my_af.gbs

Program "my_af.gbs" to the FPGA at address 0000:3b:00.0.
