4.4.4. Nios® V Processor Application Execute-In-Place from TCM

The execute-in-place method sets the Nios® V processor reset address to the base address of the tightly coupled memory (TCM). The application binary (.hex) file is loaded into the TCM when you configure the FPGA after you compile the hardware design in the Intel® Quartus® Prime software. Once the Nios® V processor resets, the application begins executing and branches to the entry point.
Note: Execute-In-Place from TCM does not require boot copier because Nios® V processor application is already in place at system reset.
