5.4. Introduction to Nios® V Processor Booting Methods

Nios® V processor systems require the hardware and software images to be configured in system memory before the processor can begin executing the application program. Refer to Linker Sections for the default linker sections.

The BSP Editor generates a linker script that performs the following functions:
  • Ensures that the processor software is linked in accordance with the linker settings of the BSP editor and determines where the software resides in memory.
  • Positions the processor's code region in the memory component containing the reset address.

The following section briefly describes the available Nios® V processor booting methods.
