6.5.2. Additional Memory Space for System Prototyping

Even if your final product includes no off-chip memory, Altera recommends that your prototype board include a connection to some region of off-chip memory. This component in your system provides additional memory capacity that enables you to focus on refining code functionality without worrying about code size. Later in the design process, you can substitute a smaller memory device to store your software.
