At this Open Source Hardware User Group meeting we will be given an intro to programmable logic and the associated development cycle, hear about applications in computer conservation, and learn about open source chip design, the OpenCores community and the MIPS-like OpenRISC 1000 CPU.
In this short introductory talk we will cover the basics of programmable logic devices and talk about the design, synthesis, simulation, implementation and programming cycles associated with FPGA projects
Omer is a research student at the University of Kent working on dynamically reconfigurable architectures and embedded systems.
In this talk, Lawrence Wilkinson discusses how recreated a IBM System/360 Model 30 mainframe as a gate-level simulation, using the original circuits and microcode. Development of the project continues with the further addition of storage and I/O devices.
Lawrence Wilkinson currently supports various factory test systems for Mercedes-Benz Grand Prix in Northamptonshire.
This talk will look at what is involved in putting together an open source chip design. In particular the licensing issues represent a challenge, with standard F/OSS licenses having serious weaknesses when it comes to licensing hardware.
