This paper presents a novel bitstream generator tool of multiple functions, it was developed to support a radiation-hardened SOI FPGA (VS1000), which has been fabricated with 0.5um SOI-CMOS process. This tool is a part of the VS1000 automation design software system (VDK), and has multiple functions. Like other bitstream generator, it can generate a basic bitstream with whole chip configurable contents for programming FPGA, it can also supply partial bitstreams, readback command bitstreams, as well as change FPGA chip configurable property. This tool serves for FPGA full-chip verification, package test, normal test, radiation test and application. The VS1000 FPGA tests above illustrates that this bitstream generator tool works well.
