U-Boot SPL(Secondary Program Loader) is a small binary, generated from U-Boot source, that fits in the SRAM and loads the main U-Boot into system RAM.

Suppose in Xilinx Zynq U-Boot SPL will replaces FSBL means we don't need to use FSBL for booting zynq boards. We need to have zynq u-boot that capable of handling SPL, where you can create boot.bin using spl binary and the spl oriented boot image (boot.bin) will load u-boot-dtb.img

  • Clone zynq u-boot
bash> git clone https://github.com/openedev/u-boot-zynq.git
  • Build for zynq microzed board
bash> make zynq_microzed_defconfig
bash> make DEVICE_TREE=zynq-microzed
  • Generate boot.bin
bash> ./tools/zynq-boot-bin.py -o boot.bin -u spl/u-boot-spl.bin
Input file is: spl/u-boot-spl.bin
Output file is: boot.bin
Using /media/jagan/u-boot-zynq/spl/u-boot-spl.bin to get image length - it is 43884 (0xab6c) bytes
After checksum waddr= 0x13  byte addr= 0x4c
Number of registers to initialize 0
Generating binary output  /media/jagan/u-boot-zynq/boot.bin
  • Boot the SPL and main u-boot
 Copy boot.bin and u-boot-dtb.img onto SD card and set microzed board as
 SD bootmode and Rreset the board.
