(Redirected from Booting NIOS II from Altera Serial Flash Controller (EPCQ) with blinking LEDs)
A design of booting NIOS II processor from EPCQ flash with blinking LEDs is presented here. This design was created following the AN-736 Nios II Processor Booting From Altera Serial Flash (EPCQ), utilizing Cyclone V SOC development board. If another device would be targeted for this project, the user can change the targeted device in this example to any required device, with the following steps:
The Design file can be downloaded from here File:NIOS DEBUG.zip.
The snapshot below elaborates the basic Qsys system required for booting NIOS II from EPCQ flash.
Please Note the following points:
The user must consider the bsp settings according to AN 736.
NOTE: This Project works on NIOS II/f core only, since NIOS II/e core is not able to boot from EPCQ.
