Embedded Systems Lab

Embedded Systems Lab



Become a system architect by creating an entire Nios II based processor system in 3 hours or less.

This lab is a great tool if you are new to developing embedded systems on FPGAs and explains not only the "how" but also the "why". The lab targets DE1 hardware but you dont need the hardware to build the lab, only to test it.

Topics covered

  • Designing the system with an explanation of design flow, requirements, and strategy
  • Setting up a Quartus II project
  • Building the SOPC System with SOPC Builder
  • Building the software application with the Nios II Embedded Design Suite
  • Lab validation to provide feedback on the usefulness of this lab

New Lab requirements v9.1

1.     Lab Design Files (free download)

a.     Lab Instruction Workbook v9.1 PDF Doc (4MB)


Note: The Filtering section of the Clock in the document does not refer to adding of a CLOCK which is mentioned in the 9.0 Workbook. Refering the section 4.4 in 9.0 would be apt to avoid confusion.

  1. Quartus II and Nios II EDS v9.1 or above (Download free Web Edition)
  2. Cyclone II Starter Kit (optional if you would like to see the system actually run on hardware)
