Arduinio brought a brand new FPGA board to the market!
Its quite cheap (50 EUR) and seems to have 8 MByte of SRAM


Not much info yet.
Seems they will build the future software on System Verilog.
And maybe they create also a Verilog dev. platform on the web.
Could imagine that Intel will support it. Their standing in the embedded 
world is friendly spoken quite weak up to now.

But Arduinio was a success story up to now, so I am optimistic that they
will bring FPGA programming to the people, as they did with 
microcontroller programming.

Could any body say if the Cyclone 10CL016 is powerful enough to handle 
the Oberon system?

Bringing Oberon and Arduinio together would be a big step ahead for 
Oberon / Risc-5, I think.
