Does ARM and Nios use different EDS ?

Hello, 

 

I would like to ask what is the software tool for development with ARM and which is for Nios ? 

Are they different tools ? 

 

 

Thank you, 

Ran

Yes, DS-5 for ARM and custom Eclipse for NIOS (included in Quartus)

Thank you, 

 

When building multiprocessor with both ARM and Nios there are some shared memory consideration which need to be taken (for example when one processor need to write into the same memory which need to be read from - which is a requirement in our system ). 

Is there a guideliness on this when multiprocessor is composed of ARM and Nios ? 

 

Regards, 

Ran

I don't think there is a guideline, but you should (e.g. if you use Linux and/or uboot) reserve the lower part of the RAM for the HPS and use upper addresses for the NIOS-System.
