DE1- SoC Accelerometer (ADXL345) with nios II

Hi, 
I have a DE1-SoC and I'm trying to access the G-Sensor device from the Nios II, I know that it's possible via the I2C interface, but I don't know how to do that.
I'm reading tutorials and one of them says that there's another tutorial named :" Using the DE1- SoC Accelerometer with nios II " that I can't find anywhere. 
Where can I find this tutorial ?
Thanks.

Hello, 

 

Thanks for your reply, I already did refer to this documentation, and this one asks me to refer to the other one named "Using the DE1- SoC Accelerometer with nios II" which I'm looking for.

Hi @AdelAkl,

 

I see, Altera's university program site has been deprecated and all the content should be already moved here.

Please do check out the new site and let us know if what you are finding are available.

Hi @BoonBengT_Intel,

 

I already checked out this website, I still can't find the PDF I'm looking for ("Using the DE1- SoC Accelerometer with nios II"),
There's only "Use the Accelerometer on Terasic DE-SoC Boards" which is not what I'm looking for.

 

Best regards.

Hi @AdelAkl,

 

Apologies for the delayed in response, unfortunately we do not have the exact design example using accelerometer with Nios ii.
However in the previous link there are design example with just the accelerometer with DE1-SOC, which might be a good start on how to use the accelerometer and further improve the design by adding in Nios ii.
Please do let us know if that helps to clarify.
