4.7.1. Nios® V Processor Application Executes in-place from TCM

The tightly coupled memories are initialized during FPGA configuration with data from a Nios® V processor application image. This data is built into the FPGA configuration bitstream. This process eliminates the need for a boot copier, as the Nios® V processor application is already in place at system reset.
