5.4. Nios® II
The Nios® II processor supports all Intel® FPGA and SoC families. A Nios® II processor system is equivalent to a microcontroller or “computer on a chip” that includes a processor and a combination of peripherals and memory on a single chip. A Nios® II processor system consists of a Nios® II processor core, a set of on-chip peripherals, on-chip memory, and interfaces to off-chip memory, all implemented on a single Intel FPGA device. Like a microcontroller family, all Nios® II processor systems use a consistent instruction set and programming model.
