Since 2000, the folks at Realtime Embedded have concentrated on helping companies develop embedded systems used in advanced products. Their four primary focus areas are FPGA, Linux, virtual hardware, and multicore processing systems. Realtime Embedded is involved in customer and financed research projects, in house and on site, spanning a wide range of industries.
Many of you may have already read my blog called How to design an FPGA from scratch, which I started to write 2006 and which Max Maxfield wrote about in EE Times for the first time in 2007.
My latest blog describes the work I have performed at Realtime Embedded over the course of the past year. In this blog, I investigate four soft-core processors and use the same setup as in my first blog called learning by doing. This means that each soft processor will be implemented in an FPGA and the whole design process will be documented.
