FPGA-based 32-bit RISC NIOSII processor as an alternative for AVR/Atmega

FPGA-based processors such as NIOS/MicroBlaze are capable of doing pretty amazing stuff. I’m surprised that so far it’s not very popular amongst the electronic enthusiasts. The strength of FPGA-based embedded system is that it’s so flexible. It allows you to configure each individual peripheral for your system, define address ranges … etc, BUT this is also the weakness […]
