    Design in a serial port and program it externally, or use JTAG, or use an SRAM that reads its contents at start-up from a flash ROM... there are many ways.

    Hi chroot..

    My knowledge in this field is limited. I read about using JTAG but JTAG can be use to program the FPGA by loading .bin file (binary file) on it. so How can I use JTAG to load these data without effecting the FPGA.

    How are you coding your FPGA? Are you using Verilog?

    No VHDL

    I'm trying to load images from an SRAM card on the Xilinx ML401 board to a VGA monitor. Any chance you could give me a hand ?
