Arduino on Steroids!
What can I say?
I put my name down for funding it at INDIEGOGO.
The project brilliant. Done to an Arduino IDE mod to do multi-threaded work.
Now, I wonder … you could probably use this technique to have a multi-threaded FORTH engine. Not as many “cores” as Chuck Moore’s G144A12 Chip but likely more practicable given not every one will need 144 cores for practical projects.
I guess optional cores are:
- J1 and as implemented on the gameduino (XILINX).
- myforthprocessor at OpenCores – really BIG and comes with compiler. Core includes floating point and it appears already has multi-core option (Xilinx).
- HIVE at OpenCores – already has 8 threads (Altera but needs a bigger chip than on our experimenters board).
Certainly, as far as the cloudx project is concerned, there may be impetus for a cut down version that could be used (4 AVR MCU/threads say) without as much companion real estate as a APM-Multithread. Just saying.
Dead project. Chap couldn’t get the backing. Oh well.
