Where is a reference design (with mSGDMA's) that works with the SSS EDS Template.


I can't seem to find any reference designs (Qsys files) that will work out of the box with the Simple Socket Server examples. Mainly because they all use regular SGDMAs and not the modular SGDMA's . The documentation on the template is out dated (point to old non-modular designs). If there is an actual reference design that can be used with the template I would like to know.



FYI: Documentation of template:

refer to the Design Examples page of the Nios II documentation available with your installation at:


which says to look at the following kits which all use non modular dma and Quartus 11


Each design example supports one or more of the following kits:

  • Stratix IV GX FPGA Development Kit (4SGX230)
  • Altera Embedded Systems Development Kit, Cyclone III Edition (EP3C120)
  • Nios II Embedded Evaluation Kit, Cyclone III Edition (EP3C25)

The following links consist of the SSS example designs (for Arria 10 and Cyclone 10 LP) that use MSGDMA, where the default SSS template is required to do some minor modification to fit into the different hardware profiles. Please have a look at the following example design.

Thank you, Looks like that will probably work. Will try to reply after I test it out.
