The Nios® II hardware development tutorial introduces you to the system development flow for the Nios II processor. The design example accompanying this tutorial serves as a basic starting block for you to build a system as shown in Figure 1. Using the Quartus® Prime or Quartus II software and the Nios II Embedded Design Suite (EDS), you can build a Nios II hardware system design and create a software program that runs on the Nios II system and interfaces with components on Altera® development boards.
