The Nios® II processor can check for division errors and generate an exception when a division error is encountered.

The division error exception detects divide instructions that produce a quotient that can't be represented. The two cases are divide by zero and a signed division that divides the largest negative number -2147483648 (0x80000000) by -1 (0xffffffff). Division error detection is only available if divide instructions are supported by hardware.
