fpga_load - Xorcom Astribank (xpp) firmware tool SYNOPSIS
fpga_load [-g] [-r] [-v] -D {/proc/bus/usb|/dev/bus/usb}/BUS/DEV fpga_load [-g] [-v] -D {/proc/bus/usb|/dev/bus/usb}/BUS/DEV -I firmware.hex [-b dump.bin] [-i] fpga_load -h DESCRIPTION
fpga_load loads the FPGA firmware to the Xorcom Astribank device. The syntax resembles that of fxload(8). OPTIONS
-b dump.bin Before writing firmware, bump the processed binary file to dump.bin. -D DEVICE Required. The device to read from/write to. On modern UDEV-based system this is usually /dev/bus/usb/bus_num/device_num, where bus_num and device_num are the first two numbers in the output of lsusb(8). On older systems that use usbfs, it is usually /proc/bus/usb/bus_num/device_num. -r Reset the Astribank and renumerate its USB connection to power on product ID. -g Dump all eeprom data to standard output. -I fireware_file The firmware file to write to the device. -i Show information about the firmware file (valid only with -I option). Example: ./FPGA_1151.hex: Version=3297 Checksum=58270 In particular, the calculated checksum should match the output of sum(1) on the binary firmware file generated by the -b option. -v Increase verbosity. May be used multiple times. -h Displays usage message. SEE ALSO

usbmodules - List kernel driver modules available for a plugged in USB device SYNOPSIS
usbmodules [--device /proc/bus/bus/NNN/NNN] [--check modulename] [--help] [--mapfile pathname] [--version pathname] DESCRIPTION
usbmodules lists driver modules that may be able to manage interfaces on currently plugged in USB devices. usbmodules may be used by /sbin/hotplug or one of its agents (normally /etc/hotplug/usb.agent) when USB devices are "hot plugged" into the system. This can be done by the following Bourne shell syntax: for module in $(usbmodules --device $DEVICE) ; do modprobe -s -k "$module" done The DEVICE environment variable is passed from the kernel to /sbin/hotplug during USB hotplugging if the kernel was configured using usbde- vfs. usbmodules currently requires usbdevfs to operate. When a USB device is removed from the system, the Linux kernel will decrement a usage count on USB driver module. If this count drops to zero (i.e., there are no clients for the USB device driver), then the modprobe -r process that is normally configured to run from cron every few minutes will eventually remove the unneeded module. OPTIONS
--check modulename Instead of listing the relevant modules, just exit with code 0 (success) if the given module's exported USB ID patterns matches. Otherwise, return failure. usbmodules emits no output either way. --device /proc/bus/usb/MMM/NNN Selects which device usbmodules will examine. The argument is currently mandatory. --help, -h Print a help message --mapfile /etc/hotplug/usb.handmap Use the specified file instead of the /lib/modules/.../modules.usbmap file corresponding to the running kernel. --version Identifies the version of usbutils this tool was built with. FILES
/lib/modules/<kernel-version>/modules.usbmap This file is automatically generated by depmod, versions 2.4.2 and later, and is used by usbmodules to determine which modules cor- respond to which USB ID's. /proc/bus/usb An optional interface to USB devices provided by Linux kernels with versions of the 2.4 USB support. Contains per-bus subdirectories with per-device files (offering a usermode driver API as well as access to device and configuration descriptors), a devices file containing a list of all USB devices, and a drivers file listing USB device drivers known to the USB subsystem.
