4. Instantiating the Nios II Processor

This chapter describes the Nios® II Processor parameter editor in Qsys. The Nios II Processor parameter editor allows you to specify the processor features for a particular Nios II hardware system. This chapter covers the features of the Nios II processor that you can configure with the Nios II Processor parameter editor; it is not a user guide for creating complete Nios II processor systems.

To get started designing custom Nios II systems, refer to the Nios II Hardware Development Tutorial.

Development kits for Altera devices, available on the All Development Kits page of the Altera website, also provide ready-made hardware design examples that demonstrate different configurations of the Nios II processor.
