Firmware Engineering Workshop - CH Ting
"eForth is a very simple Forth implementation portable to all types of microprocessors and microcontrollers. eForth's ideal platform requires 16 KBytes of RAM/ROM memory. If both ROM and RAM memory can be mapped to the same logical memory space, the firmware development will be greatly simplified. I will demonstrate two platforms, an ARM7-based prototype board from Olimex and an eP32 system implemented on a FPGA from Altera. Substantial Forth application code has been written and verified on these systems. This Workshop summarizes how to produce firmware with eForth."
