How can you re-initialize a program memory for a NIOS II ?

I have an issue which I am trying to debug where I suspect my program memory is being overwritten...

The program and data memory is a shared altera_avalon_onchip_memory2. Hitting the reset to the memory and the NIOS (from an external source) when the NIOS is running correctly seems to crash the processor. Should resetting the NIOS and the memory re-initialize the contents ?

Thanks.

Hi @FrogWeapons,

Thank you for posting in Intel community forum, hope this message find you well and apologies for the delayed in response.
Per my understanding, to enable system to start after power on, we would need to write the sof and program the flash.
Unfortunately user guide for Arria V are not available, however here is a user guide for max10 which might be a good starting point.
