FPGA-based open source development producing real hardware capable of running Linux.



Proposed Topics

  • System bringup (processor, memory, serial, compiler, libc, kernel, shell prompt.)
  • IP issues (open licensing, patent expiration…)
  • Fabbing an ASIC with Kickstarter
  • Existing projects (jcore, RISC-V, LEON…)
  • Bitstream development for software developers.
  • Minimal hw devices needed for a new platform to get kernel up and running to shell prompt on serial console.
  • Kernel expectations for hardware - how to design hw to work well with Linux device/driver/resource/irq/etc. models.
  • Device tree hello world - minimal dt examples for real hw.


  • Email rob@landley.net or j-core@j-core.org
