We are talking about new SoC Power based in development. The team is looking for collaborations for everyone skilled in CPU / GPU / VPU design.

FPGA is a starting point for the initial Microwatt core implementation. The subsequent step is the ASIC implementation.

Dying platform, replaced by ARM SoC in most appliences.

There is no team at least no one with skills in hard- and software or with money.

No, it is a possible target point for hardware emulation, the only way that is left when no one sees a real chance for mass produced hardware.

And seeing what happens when the SoC doesn't has the right kind of FPU for your target OS, should make you more realistic.

You know that project is destined for greatness when you find gems like this from developer list written by the leader.

Q: do you understand or know what OP_SC is or does?
A: i don't... and don't care, and it is completely irrelevant to you, as well.

(it's *optional* to have understanding: you may *desire* understanding,
you may *like* to have understanding, but it is, fundamentally, *completely
irrelevant* to the actual task)

Q: do we *need* to understand or know what OP_SC is or does?
A: no we do not.

Q: will it work?
A: yes it will.

Q: will there be bugs?
A: most probably, and those can be found with unit tests.

Q: do absolutely all the required unit tests have to be written *right now*?
A: no they do not.

Q: do we need to freeze and lock up solid in total fear at our total and
complete lack of understanding just because those unit tests do not exist?
A: of course not.

so reading a 1300 page PDF is completely and utterly pointless. and making reading that 1300 page PDF a hard, fixed, absolute critical dependency on *completing this task* is a false assumption, isn't it?
