No. EDK/XPS only supports the MicroBlaze and PPC.

Other FPGA-based processors will have different tool flows.

its not so impossible, well at least with some OLD EDK version i managed to use my processor core in XPS inplace of microblaze

 

but well. it not reasonable.. so better to forget this

 

sure Altera SoPC allows custom and user processor IP cores to be used, that works really easy,

but xilinx doesnt offer that

Antti,

 

Many things in life are possible for those with the proper technical inclination and motiviation. ;)

Supporting custom user peripherals in EDK/XPS is certainly an intended feature based on the capabilities and documentation provided. I think it is fair to say that EDK was generally designed to support only the MicroBlaze, V2P & V4FX's PPC405 and V5FXT's PPC440 for a variety of practical reasons. As you said, there is a distinction for most users based on what is reasonable.
