Simulating Nios II Embedded Processor Designs

This example shows the process of generating an RTL simulation environment using Nios® II example designs, SOPC Builder, and the Nios II Software Build Tools. It also describes the process of running the Nios II RTL simulation in the ModelSim® simulator. This is a simulation-only example design, so development kits are not required.
