2.6.4. Address Map

The address map for memories and peripherals in a Nios® II processor system is design dependent. You specify the address map in Platform Designer.

There are three addresses that are part of the processor and deserve special mention:

  • Reset address
  • Exception address
  • Break handler address

Programmers access memories and peripherals by using macros and drivers. Therefore, the flexible address map does not affect application developers.
