I am Creating a system of NIOS II that boot from a Qspi flash device and also the code will be copied to a parallel flash device. I am not sure if this is doable. I cannot find an example or a guide of how to do that. I am ok to use any board that can fit this design.

Can you please help?

Hi Galio, Yes this is doable if you have have a QSPI flash, convert your design files to .jic to configure the flsah and in the design point the NIOS II vectors to the CFI to get the code from there. To write the hex file to CFI, use a PFL (Parallel Flash Loader) to write the CFI. I will share with you a guide of how to do it.
