Nios peripherals to ARM

Hey everyone,

 

I am working on Arria V,

I want to know if there is any way to make a BSP that runs with nios II to run with on ARM.

for example,

UART peripheral that runs on nios to make it run on the ARM

i know that there is a FPGA-HPS , but i dont know if it will solve the problem.

 

 

Thanks,

Dor

I think you're asking a 'Platform Designer' question, not a 'Board Support Package' question.

 

A NIOS BSP would not work on an ARM. An ARM BSP would not work on a NIOS.

A BSP for a multi-CPU (ARM & NIOS) is possible.

 

If you create a custom peripheral for a NIOS it should work on the ARM; they use the same bus.
