[Oberon] FPGA - Save / Restore OBERON.FS

  both the file size and the file system limits are a showstopper in a real application like the one I am pursuing. My data files can be GB, and the storage medium must hold at least a few of those to be practical during a measurement. 

Another practical issue is how to transfer the data to a workstation for analysis under a mainstream OS, either Linux or Windows. All analysis codes use one of these environments. It would be terrific if Oberon used either of the mainstream file systems which would be native to Linux or Windows. 

I am not an expert of this. I am a user. I know that I can stick the SD card into Linux and I can see the BeagleBone file system. Thus I can transfer my measurements from the BeagleBone-based DAQ to a workstation for analysis. This would be the goal.

Hi Wojtek

Were you referring to the limitation of the size of a single file (3 MB) or the limitation of the size of the whole filesystem (64 MB)?

There will be an enhanced Oberon file system in Experimental Oberon offering, amongst other things, larger file sizes.
