I am working on a project that i inherited from another company. It uses two NIOS II processors. What is the procedure for writing the two executables to Flash?

Hello, 

 

The most important is to take care that the executables will not overlap in the flash memory regions. For that reason you will make a rough estimation about how much space they are going to consume and in the SOPC builder or QSYS you will leave the proper space between them. A very nice reference to read about that is in the tutorial (tt_nios2_multiprocessor_tutorial.pdf). Check at page 1-9 the paragraph software design considerations for multiple processors 

I think the tutorial will solve all your questions. If not, come back here to see it in more detail.
