Ah yes coz PilOS is fully based on pil64. Ah you mean there is no ARM port of
the pil32 yet right? i thought someone here has successfuly install picolisp on
an ARM device? or its not enough to consider as ARM port?
Thanks! more cooler is its using unconventional chips compared to other kits:*
FRAM = better compared to EEPROM* Asyn SRAM = better and easier then SDRAM* NOR
Flash ROM = better and easier than NAND Flash ROM found on SD cards
I know these are bit pricey and has lower capacity? But the reason is i
handpicked them so that its tailored to be exactly same as what we implemented
on the verilog emulator, this will help a faster turn around to finish the
first prototype. Once we got this working, we can strip down and optimiz it
from there and that's when the crowd-funding comes in..
The current specs for this board is:* 64bit pilMCU (using Altera FPGA)* 256KB
FRAM for microcode* 16MB Async SRAM for main RAM, upgradable to 32MB* 512MB NOR
Flash for main storage, upgradable to 1GB* Compatible with Waveshare 7" LCD +
Capacitive Touch* Compatible with Waveshare VGA + PS2 module* Compatible with
Waveshare Wifi module* Comaptible with Waveshare Ethernet module* GPIO's, I2C,
SPI, UART interfaces* BCD to 7-seg and buttons* MCU is programmable via UART,
so any computer with terminal emulator can program this board without
installing any IDE. Even the old workstations (SUN, SGI, IBM) can also develop
with this board because of UART.
Later part, even smartphones or smartpads can directly program this via BLE in
which a BLE module is connected to act as UART.
> Hmm, no idea ... ;)
hehe no attempts? ok ill just spill it out :) actually i have plenty of options
so you and everyone can help me which is better:
(A P F E L) = A Portable For Every Lispers(A P F E L) = A Platform For Every
Lispers(A P F E L) = A Platform For Embedded Lisp(A P F E L) = A Playground For
Every Lispers(A P F E L) = A Playground For Embedded Lisp(A P F E L) = Alex
Platform For Embedded Lisp(A P F E L) = Alex Platform For Every Lispers(A P F E
L) = Alex Playground For Embedded Lisp(A P F E L) = Abu's Platform For Embedded
Lisp(A P F E L) = Abu's Platform For Every Lispers(A P F E L) = Abu's
Playground For Embedded Lisp
And some older ideas i got:
FLEK = for lispers embedded kitPIL = platform in lispPLIC = Pico Lisp in Chip
(pilMCU alternative name)PLOC = Pico Lisp on Chip (pilMCU alternative name)PoC
= Picolisp on Chip (pilMCU alternative name)

Hi Robert, Geo,
indeed, an interesting piece of hardware!

Not just "prefer" ... There is no way to run PilOS on 32-bits. Besides
the fact that there is no ARM port yet.

Hmm, no idea ... ;)
