Hi guys!!! 

 

 

I'd like to learn to use a avalon mm bus in my Cycone II using qsys, but I dont have a good tutorial where I can learn it . 

 

 

Could you give a good example or reference where can I learn to use it? 

 

 

PD: my FPGA doesn't has a NIOS

I want to implement Qsys without NIOS. 

 

I've attached image where I made a system. I've conected a GIPO (avalon MM slave) with Avalon MM master translator. 

 

My idea is using a Avalon MM master translator to send datas to GPIO (avalon MM slave) (I think that system is basic to start :confused:) 

 

I've got some questions: 

 

My system works?.... If works... How should I setup Avalon MM master translator and GPIO? 

 

 

I've notice through forum and internet that Qsys must be implemet to one NIOS application (Am I right?), because I've couldn't to find a project or tutorial that showing me the opposite.

No, Nios is not required to control things. You could create a state machine as a custom master component. There are lots of free online trainings to get started with Qsys:
