Google "systems on chip Felix Friedrich" and you'll find a number of
fascinating PDF papers describing the work that Felix has been doing
recently. Add "fpga' to the search terms if you want to narrow down the
results. The slides from the 'Workshop on System-on-Chip Design' presented
at National Chiao Tung University, Taipei, 21.-23.10.2013 is a good one for
an overview - particularly the sections on Math Oberon and Active Cells.

Also there is a list of his papers here:


However, don't expect to see the word 'fox' in any of this - that's a bit of
a red herring ...
