Download Node FPGAs
Kollmorgen’s SynqNet nodes are shipped with boot FPGA images (*.sff). The boot image contains minimal functionality to allow the node to be accessed by the SynqNet controller. To use the node, first download the appropriate FPGA (runtime) image.
To find the appropriate FPGA (runtime) image that should be downloaded for each node, refer to the Node Binary Files: Product Table.
There are two ways to download the Node FPGA. By using:
Motion Console Download
In the SynqNet Node Summary window, click on the Binary Download button.
The Download Binary Image to SqNodes window displays, Click Browse.
Find the appropriate FPGA file and select Open. In this example, we are downloading the
Once the appropriate FPGA file has been selected, click download.
The downloading Firmware to SqNodes window displays the status of the download.
Refresh Motion Console by maximizing the screen. The following screen displays. Notice that the
Command Prompt Download
Open a Command Prompt window and proceed to the following directory to download the proper *.sff file:
C:\Program Files\MEI\MDK\04.02.00\win32\sqNodeFlash.exe -node 0 -file ..node\c0fe0029_0501.sff
The selected FPGA file is downloaded after all of the pages have been counted.
Refresh Motion Console by maximizing the screen. The following screen displays. Notice that the "FPGA Vendor/Device" now reflects the downloaded FPGA: 0xC0FE0029.
