Using NicheStack TCP/IP Stack – Nios® II Edition


This design example shows the use of MicroC/OS-II and NicheStack TCP/IP Stack in Nios II Software Build Tools for Eclipse (Nios II SBT for Eclipse). It demonstrates a socket server using the NicheStack TCP/IP Stack – Nios II Edition on MicroC/OS-II. The design example consists of a socket server task that listens for commands on a TCP/IP port and dispatches those commands to a set of LED management tasks. This design example is not a complete implementation of a telnet server.

Using This Design Example

The use of this design is governed by, and subject to, the terms and conditions of the Intel® Design Example License Agreement.

Hardware Requirements

The software examples are designed to run on the Nios II Ethernet Standard design example. The Nios II Ethernet Standard design example page of the Intel website contains the hardware design files for a number of Intel FPGA development boards. Navigate to the web page and locate the Nios II Ethernet Standard design example .zip file that corresponds to your board.

NicheStack Support and Licensing

The NicheStack TCP/IP Stack software and driver package are discontinued starting with Intel® Quartus® Prime Pro Edition software version 21.3 and Intel Quartus Prime Standard Edition software version 21.1. A new TCP/IP stack is planned for a future release of Intel Quartus Prime Design Suite.
