I am trying to get output from a logic I am implementing in the FPGA through the UART (RS232 -> USB ). I am new to the SoC-based design flow and hence couldn't figure out how to connect the peripherals in Qsys. I would appreciate it if anyone could give me a tutorial for this kind of design.
Check out the GHRD for that board. It may already have a UART implemented in the FPGA, and if it doesn't then it probably has some basic IP in it. You could use that to see how to add a UART yourself.
