Comparing FPGAs 1:1 is difficult. The RISC-5 CPU fits in a LX9.

- LX9     has    9K logic cells,   576 kbits memory,   200 IO

- CL016 has 16k logic cells,    504 kbits memory,  340 IO

    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.
