1.3. Nios® V Processor Licensing

Each Nios® V processor core has its license key. You can acquire the Nios® V Processor Intel® FPGA IP licenses at zero cost.
The Nios® V processor license key list is available in the Intel FPGA Self-Service Licensing Center. Click the Sign up for Evaluation or Free License tab, and select the corresponding options to make the request.

With the license keys, you can:
  • Implement a Nios® V processor within your system.
  • Simulate the behavior of a Nios® V processor system.
  • Verify the functionality of the design, such as size and speed.
  • Generate device programming files.
  • Program a device and verify the design in hardware.

You do not need a license to develop software in the Ashling* RiscFree* IDE for Intel FPGAs.
