In this project, the main objective is the remote programming of a programmable logic device (PLD). Each PLD can be programmed by receiving a pre-derived bitstream, with which the internal logic blocks and the routing resources of the PLD are programmed. This bitstream is the output of the hardware logic design process and/or design automation tools. Traditionally, the bitstream is downloaded to the PLD through the use of a serial/parallel port, or more recently through a local bus, such as the PCI bus. The crucial point is that the local host usually performs this download action to the PLD. The purpose of this project is to allow a remote host to program the logic blocks and routing resources of a PLD across a network.
