Transferring files to Linux target via JTAG

Hello, 

 

I'm trying to transfer files to uCLinux running on a NIOS II CPU with MMU. The problem is that the design has no ethernet controller. Is there a way to transfer files to the target Linux via JTAG? Which software would I need on the target and on the host?

Maybe you want to transfer binary files, and if you can use JTAG-UART, then it is one method to use xmodem protocol.

In your PC side, maybe you must use 'nios2-terminl'. See also
