This design example highlights the Dhrystone millions of instructions per second (MIPS) performance of the Nios II processor. It includes the Fast hardware design and the Dhrystone benchmark software application. The system achieves over 200 Dhrystone MIPS in the Nios II /f core running on a Stratix® II FPGA. You can use this design with the Nios II development kit, Stratix II Edition, and the Cyclone® III FPGA development kit.
