0 0 1,707

Attend the "Ask an Expert" session to learn about the New Nios V/g core in Quartus Prime Pro software version 23.1.

The Nios® V/g processor is the second soft processor core in the Nios V embedded processor series and is supported in Intel Agilex®, Intel® Stratix® 10, Intel® Arria® 10, and Intel® Cyclone® 10 GX FPGAs and SoCs.  With Nios V, you can easily create a processor system using the traditional hardware tool flows like Intel® Quartus® Prime Software and Platform Designer as needed for your production solution. 

The Nios V/g processor core is based on the RISC-V RV32IMA instruction set architecture and delivers more capabilities and better performance over the existing Nios V/m core, with hardware features including: 

  • Configurable instruction/data caches (1, 2, 4, 8, or 16 Kbytes each)​ 
  • An integer multiply/divide unit 
  • Atomic read-modify-write instructions 
  • Support for user-defined custom instructions 

In addition, the Nios V/g core has an expanded software ecosystem including FreeRTOS, and Zephyr RTOS support. The Ashling RiscFree IDE is also enhanced, with debug support for FreeRTOS and Zephyr RTOS, as well as continuing support for the existing Intel Hardware Abstraction Layer (HAL) and uCOS operating system.  

You can get the Nios® V/g processor license from the Self-Service Licensing Centre and try it out in the Intel® Quartus® Prime Pro Edition Software v23.1 yourself.  

To learn more about the Nios® V processors, attend the Nios V Soft Processors for Intel FPGAs Ask an Expert session on May 3, 2023. You can come and get answers to questions or interact with other like-minded designers who are working on embedded systems development using Nios processors in Intel FPGAs. 

It doesn’t matter what level you’re at! If you’re new to embedded software development, come and find out more. If you’ve been designing with Nios II for some time and have a number of shipping products under your belt, come ask some of those detailed questions you may have about the new Nios V/g processor or the already-shipping Nios V/m processor.
