Cyclone V HPS Memory

Hi, I have been researching this all day but I'm still lost or rather unclear so I ask you guys. 

 

Do I need external RAM to use the HPS? Can I not just instantiate on-chip memory and run a bare-metal application from there? I just wanted the BootROM to load my application into on chip memory and run. Is this possible at all? 

 

Thanks in advance!

Thanks so much! I see it! So now I just have to write a bare-metal application and convert it to a memory initialization file and then set it into the FPGA on chip RAM. 

 

Thank you for the help :D
