Speaking of h/w and f/w, was the model helicopter flight control ever
ported to Oberon-07?
In Niklaus Wirth, "A Computer System for Model Helicopter Flight
Control", Technical Memo Nr. 6: The Oberon Compiler for the
Strong-ARM Processor, 1999, we find the following in the conclusion.
An important advantage of designing one's own compiler is that
specific, perhaps machine−dependent facilities can easily be
incorporated. Such facilities are required if, for example, specific
resources must be accessible, such as processor status register,
memory management registers, or device interfaces. This is typically
the case for embedded applications, which also require a predictable
performance for real−time sensing and control.
