Is firmware pre-installed on new SoC parts?

Can you tell me if the ALFAT SoC processor parts have both bootloader and firmware installed when purchased? The older ALFAT XP parts were delivered with only the bootloader installed. I don’t see any notes about this in the user manual, and need to know if we need to connect the UART interface even though we plan to use SPI in our application.

Everything is pre loaded

@ hem -

You can update new FW for ALFAT.

To update / flash the FW, only UART is used.
Go here to get an application and follow those instructions.
