FPGA Firmware naming convention

Check the dependency between DTH DAQ Firmware and SlinkRocket IP version in the SlinkRocket page

The following naming convention for the firmware image files has been adopted. When using the software utility provided by the DAQ group to programme the firmware into the flash memory of the DTH, it is important not to change the names of the image files, since the utility relies on this convention.

Firmware names are structured as follows:

dth_revision : hardware revision of the board  (e.g. "p2")
target_fpga : either "daq" or "tcds2"
function : indicates functionality of the image( e.g. "golden" for the golden image to be programmed at sector 0)
major : major version (3 decimal digits)
minor : minor version (3 decimal digits)
path : patch version (3 decimal digits)
