1.5.3. Software Design Flow

After generating the Nios® V processor hardware system in Platform Designer, you need to create a Nios® V processor software system. A basic software system comprises of a Board Support Package (BSP) and Application Project File (APP).

You can apply the pre-built BSP and APP projects in the sw folder. The BSP and APP projects are compatible with the Platform Designer system in the hw folder. The pre-built projects support the following operating systems:
  • Intel® HAL (*_hal)
  • Micrium MicroC/OS-II (*_ucosii)

For custom BSP or APP projects, refer to Generating the Board Support Package and Generating the Application Project File.
