Advantages/Disadvantages of OS for testing hardware peripherals

We made a PCB design, we need to perform below tests to make sure hardware is OK. Does anyone suggest putting an OS, I believe it is too much work for just below tests.

 

  • Application code does not require OS.
  • Easily changeable read and write to i2c devices
  • Easily changeable read and write to QSPI flash devices
  • DDR3 read and write tests
  • Ethernet interface test
  • Optical transceiver interface test

Hello,

You can run these tests using Nios II processor with simple C codes.

Which FPGA device are you using?

 

Thanks

You dont have an SoC Device to test.

You can use Nios II soft core processor, with C code programming under Nios II eclipse.

 

Thanks
