PS/2 keyboard demo – displays keyboard make and break scan codes in hex on the LCD
PS/2 mouse demo – displays mouse data on the LCD
Moving Ball video display – displays a moving ball on a VGA monitor
MIPS Processor core – runs a short MIPS program on the MIPS processor core from Patterson and Hennessey, Computer Organization and Design on a VGA monitor and the LCD. Pushbuttons reset and single step the processor.
Available in Rapid Prototyping of Digital Systems: A complete NIOS II DE2 hardware and software tutorial – develops a Nios II hardware design and runs a short C program on a NIOS II processor that blinks the LEDs and tests the DE2's memory and I/O. Uses SOPC Builder and the NIOS II IDE tool to download and run. A uClinux port for the DE2 is also included.
