Pharo and FPGA

NorbertHartl
I’m trying to collect information about programming in pharo for FPGA. The only things I found are around PharoROS like this [1]. If anyone has more information or is willing to talk about I’m open ears.

The background is that we did little things with the PharoThings toolkit and want to research which other combinations like Arduino, ESP32, FPGAs are there to be a good extensions to a Pi.

Any hint is welcomed!

Thanks,

Norbert

not quite what you asked, but... apart from their size, one advantage of FPGAs and Arduino & ESP32 microprocessors 
over purpose CPUs is providing deterministic real-time latency (i.e. sensor inputs controlling motors).
For that domain a strong contender in a Pi-like format is the Programmable Realtime Unit of the BeagleBone Black.

40x faster response time than the main CPU of BeagleBone (and Pi).  See slide 11...

If I remember well, smalltalkers from britany have worked on FPGA design on visualwork. I think there were Loic Lagadec, Alain Plantec and Bernard Pottier. 



Maybe they can help here ;-)

Could we do discuss such subjects in one pharo day for instance ?

May would be perfect for me.

Hi Norbert,

The PhD of Sang (in CC) was about FPGA and Smalltalk.

I found this other reference (ESU15) and the associated youtube video:
http://esug.org/data/ESUG2015/IWST/Papers/IWST_2015_submission_6.pdf 

And some other there: https://info.lxsang.me/#toc9

So busy, for the next couple hours ;-) (even more with the PhD https://tel.archives-ouvertes.fr/tel-01661569/document)

Thanks,

Cédrick


Ps: I was looking at this conference who might be interesting for such subject and applications (but end of this week).

For information, you can find a list of old research about smalltalk embedded
in hardware:
