Nios® Soft Processor Series
The Nios® soft processors are designed specifically for Intel® FPGAs. The soft processor series is suitable for a wide range of embedded computing applications, from digital signal processing (DSP) to system-control.
The Nios® V processors based on the open-source RISC-V Instruction Set Architecture are the latest addition to the Nios® processor series.
Nios® V Processors
Nios® V processors are the next generation of soft processors for Intel® FPGA based on the open-source RISC-V Instruction Set Architecture. Nios® V processors are available in the Intel® Quartus® Prime Pro Edition Software starting with version 21.3.
Nios® II Processors
The Nios® II processors are versatile and deliver unprecedented flexibility for your cost-sensitive, real-time, safety-critical (DO-254), and applications processing needs.
With the perfect fit of CPUs, peripherals, memory interfaces, and custom peripherals to meet the unique demands of every new design cycle, Nios® processors offer you tremendous flexibility where you need it.
Long Life Cycle
Nios® processors can help product developers to maximize their return on a product by providing lifecycle benefits at every stage of a product's life.
Nios® processors give you the ultimate flexibility to achieve the exact performance required for your embedded design, without overpaying for high clock frequency, power-hungry off-the-shelf processors.
JTAG Debug Module
The Nios processors support a Joint Test Action Group (JTAG) debug module that provides on-chip debug.
