After programming the configuration memory device, you can issue a soft boot operation (i.e., JPROGRAM) to initiate the FPGA configuration from the attached configuration memory device. If you want to perform a Boot operation on the target FPGA select the target device and right-click and select Boot from Configuration Memory Device.
Figure 1. Boot from Configuration Memory Device
Important: There can be situations after booting from configuration memory where the debug cores do not show up immediately due to system boot up considerations. Xilinx® recommends that you wait for the specified time period as appropriate using the
boot_hw_deviceTcl command in the Vivado® Hardware Manager Tcl Console, as shown below:
