What is the simplest way to implement SMBUS communication to a NIOS using the SOPC\Qsys ? Are there any standard components ?
SMBus is very close to I2C so you can use an I2C master. SOPC/QSYS don't have an I2C master included, but you can find one on opencores.org or the altera wiki.
Do you know this core will work on Quartus 12.1 SP1 SOPC ?
