Loading a FPGA image using u-boot

Is there any training material which shows how to load a FPGA device image through uboot. I have a MicroZed board and would like to use uboot to load the FPGA image and the Linux Kernel iteratively.

Is there any documentation/tutorial information which shows how to use the uboot "fpga loadb" commands?

Hi dguthrie71,

There is no training on this that I am aware of but I think the matter may be a lot simpler than you think.

If you are looking to load whole bistreams into the PL, then that is pretty straightforward as seen here on the Xilinx Wiki:

If you want to be able to load partial bistreams into the PL, then that makes things more complicated:
