2 If your system includes a Nios® II/f core with a data cache, it may complicate the debugging process. If you suspect the Nios® II/f core writes to memory from the data cache at nondeterministic intervals; thereby, overwriting data written by the System Console, you can disable the cache of the Nios® II/f core while debugging.
