In about 2000, I used F-RAM on a motorola 68HC11 evaluation board.  I used
the 68HC11 Oberon compiler.  This system is too small to have a full Oberon
system on it, but I wrote some bare silicon modules to do serial I/O and
some data acquisition and control.

One of the problems that I had was the stack location assumed by the
compiler.  I did have the sources, but I also had a time deadline.  I don't
remember my exact solution today, but it did work.

Today my interests would likely be to the MIPS chip being sold my the
people who make the PIC processors.
