2.4.6. Step 6: Configure the Board with Software

In the next phase of the design, you program software to the board and generate the ELF file, the Board Support Package, and Application Project File. This stage requires the pio.c file.

You can then program the board and observe the output from the JTAG terminal. Refer to the Agilex - Nios V PIO LED Toggle Design example design for a complete design containing board support package, application project file, and ELF file to observe output from JTAG terminal. For more information about BSP and Application file generation, refer to the Nios V Embedded Processor Design Handbook.
