is it possible to boot NIOS processor in MAX 10 FPGA with Parallel flash chip (adding tristate controller IP in QSYS) ?

 

i know EPCS or UFM memory is possible but i want to know the external flash is possible or not .please confirm?

Hi, Sathish


You can boot Nios II with MAX10 FPGA from an external parallel flash.


You may refer to below for the implementation:

By the way, can we close it if you have no more inquiry ?
