Nios II is not listed as a supported target on the QEMU page: http://www.nongnu.org/qemu/status.html (http://www.nongnu.org/qemu/status.html

 

A quick Google search did not show anything either.

Meanwhile (04/2021) QEMU supports Nios2 cpu (nommu or 10M50-ghrd)

 

 

https://wiki.qemu.org/Documentation/Platforms/Nios2

 

 

Zephyr project lists details about emulated hardware: https://docs.zephyrproject.org/latest/boards/nios2/qemu_nios2/doc/index.html

(including debugging for Altera.Intel Max10 fpga: https://docs.zephyrproject.org/latest/boards/nios2/altera_max10/doc/index.html )

 

linker.h for qemu-system-nios2 from Zephyr sources
#BEFORE_EXCEPTION_REGION_BASE 0x400000
#define RESET_REGION_BASE 0x0

 

 

 

 

[ platforms listing, no Nios2, interesting source for comprehension of systems supported in Qemu:
