7.3.3. Software Design Flow

Creating a Nios® V processor software image for RSU consists of the following general steps:

  1. Generate the ZLIB libraries.
  2. Create a board support package (BSP) project.
  3. Creating a Nios® V processor application project.
  4. Building the application project using the provided source codes.
  5. Running and debugging the application project.

To ensure a streamline build flow, Intel encourages you to create a similar directory tree in your design project. The following software design flow is based on this directory tree.

To create the software project directory tree, follow these steps:

  1. In your design project folder, create a new folder named software.
  2. In the software folder, create another two folders named app and bsp.
