Is a timer interval must be used with NIOS ?

Jump to solution

Hello,

 

Is it that a timer interval MUST be used with NIOS ?

 

In nios ii software developer handbook, section 5.8.3 specifying thr default system timer, it is mentioned that on BSP generation it search for a timer.

But I see several tutrial in which no timer is used, so I am not sure if it is required or not.

 

Thanks,

ranran

>>It's based on design requirements. for example we can use it when we want periodic interrupts.

 

In nios ii software developer handbook, section 5.8.3 specifying thr default system timer, it is mentioned that on BSP generation it search for a timer.

>>The default script searches the .sopcinfo file for a timer component to use as the default system timer.Its's not default until you have timer is the Platform designer / QSYS system.
