usually this kind of post gets subconsciously
trashed by the regular posters of this ng.
but now i think that there is something good
enough to require more public exposure. at last !
because this lasts for almost two years, and we have
finally come to a rather decent definition.
This is called the F-CPU, a GPL'd platform that
is currently being created. A pseudo-RISC
(argh ! what a word !) CPU with 64 internal
general purpose registers and of course 32-bit
wide instructions and virtual memory capabilities.
that's for the outline.
For the whole background, and because i can't write
everything here, go browse the "official" site
at http://f-cpu.tux.org and read the manual
( http://f-cpu.tux.org/manual/summary.html )
(that is being written by my sore fingers).
or simply get the latest version zipped at
We are currently discussing the instruction
set and unfortunately, of the 200 bozos subscribed
in the mailing list (egroups...) only a few speak
out and so i am doing most of the work with Mathias.
So in fewer words, we need help, hints, advices,
more participations, new heads, more support,
more and more recognition and soon, access to
a BIIIG FPGA.
Read the manual, subscribe to the mailing list.
we don't ask money :-)
read you soon,
