5.2. Nios II/f Core

The Nios II/f fast core is designed for high execution performance. Performance is gained at the expense of core size. Intel FPGA designed the Nios II/f core with the following design goals in mind:
  • Maximize the instructions-per-cycle execution efficiency
  • Optimize interrupt latency
  • Maximize fMAX performance of the processor core

The resulting core is optimal for performance-critical applications, as well as for applications with large amounts of code and data, such as systems running a full-featured operating system.
