22.214.171.124. Custom Components
You can also create custom components and integrate them in Nios® II processor systems. For performance-critical systems that spend most CPU cycles executing a specific section of code, it is a common technique to create a custom peripheral that implements the same function in hardware.
This approach offers a double performance benefit:
- Hardware implementation is faster than software.
- Processor is free to perform other functions in parallel while the custom peripheral operates on data.
