Unable to build "*.elf" file in NIOS II Eclipse.

Hi All, 

 

I am novice in NIOS II Eclipse environment.  

 

To learn I am using the existing project and after compiling the nios project in Quartus. 

 

In order to generate the "*.elf" file, I created new project by pointing to "*nios_cpu.sopcinfo" file and added existing source file to the project. 

 

To build the project I am clicking on "build all" but NIOS II Eclipse environment is throwing error (Attached snapshot).  

 

console message  

 

info: linking test2.elf

It means exactly what the error message says. Your program is too big to fit into the on-chip memory. Either shrink your program code or enlarge the on-chip memory (if possible).

Hi Galfonz 

 

 

Thank you very much for your valuable input. 

 

I am able to solve the issue by increasing on chip memory. 

 

 

Thanks  

Neel.
