I’m super new here. I already have a bitstream file ready to be loaded on the CW305 board.
I’m not familiar with python but I have installed latest chip whisper tools (5.64).
VIVADO 2020.2 is installed.
What’s the easiest and fastest way to download both volatile and non-volatile bit file? maybe a script or so.
Thank you in advance
When you connect to the CW305, you can specify a bitstream to load:
target = cw.target(None, cw.targets.CW305, bitstream="path/to/my/bitstream.bit")
Thanks for your reply.
How to connect?
Where do I run this script?
You can connect via the chipwhisperer Python API:
import chipwhisperer as cw
target = cw.target(None, ...)
You can find its documentation at: https://chipwhisperer.readthedocs.io/en/latest/
Hello, thanks again.
I got this msg:
WARNING:ChipWhisperer NAEUSB:Your firmware is outdated - latest is 0.32. Suggested to update firmware, as you may experience errors
It seems Fw update is mandatory, where can I get the latest fw and how to download it.
That message is just a warning, so it’s not mandatory, just a suggestion. If you want to update,
simply follow the steps in that link:
target = cw.target(...)
prog = cw.SAMFWLoader(target)
In fact, it didn’t download the bit file. I did not get a progress status nor a confirmation.
I will try to update fw and retry downloading FPGA image.
Hi, as a first step I suggest you try to go through our CW305 AES demo: https://github.com/newaetech/chipwhisperer-jupyter/blob/f7aa41fb1d547d1d08f5dbaf6e945478278b74a0/demos/PA_HW_CW305_1-Attacking_AES_on_an_FPGA.ipynb
This will help rule out issues with your setup.
