How to load data into the DDR2 in DE3?

Hi, 

 

I use terasic DE3 with an external DDR2. The DDR2 demo given by terasic is running good but the DDR2 data is generated inside the NIOS. How should I load data from FPGA to the NIOS processor? 

 

Thanks!

In SOPC, use DMA or SGDMA. 

In Nios IDE, use IOWR and IORD.

Hi sean, 

 

Thanks for your reply. But the IOWR/IORD can run at most at around 20MHz, right? That means the highest data rate I can get is 20*64=1280Mbps, which is a huge decrease in performance. Is there any solution for that?
