I can't seem to find a definition for the term "FPGA image". I think it is just another term for an FPGA configuration that would be stored in say a SPI flash memory chip but I'm not sure.

  • \$\begingroup\$ That is correct. An "image" is a general term for a raw binary file for any programmable device. \$\endgroup\$ – Los Frijoles Jun 2 '18 at 6:18

FPGA image, FPGA configuration, and FPGA bitstream, and possibly a few more terms are all essentially synonyms. It's what gets loaded onto the FPGA through the configuration interface. Doesn't have to be stored in an SPI flash specifically.
