How to count if the board I want to buy will be enough for the targetted design? including NIOS II project.

Hi,

I am planning to have a new FPGA board to implement a NIOS design, can you help to find the most suitable board?

Hi,

 

Regarding gate count, most of the dev kit will typically be very large, hopefully much larger than our design. We can utilize a max of 60-70% FPGA resources.  

Key here is memory requirement,

The Quartus tools will estimate for you how many gates your design requires.

  1. So we can design HDL with Nios II project for a specific FPGA device with Quartus tool and check the resource utilized.
  2. Also, need to check hardware interfaces required with respect HDL design & IP's.

 

Regards

Anand
