system simulation and verification methods (NIOS)

Started by J-Wing September 7, 2003
what ways and approaches are there to do system level simulation?
i have a nios system module and a user logic which have been connected
together via the avalon bus. can simulation be done using quartus II?
Hi,

Yes, you can simulate Nios using the Quartus II simulator. For more
advanced simulation (if you want to view code execution, for example),
there is additional simulation support built into the Nios kit for
using ModelSim (both ModelSim OEM version which comes with a Quartus
subscription), or the full version. Please have a look at Altera app
note 189 (http://www.altera.com/literature/an/an189.pdf) for
instructions & a couple of simulation tutorial designs with Nios &
ModelSim.
