the SiFive board is indeed one interesting option. Maybe I can get one,
maybe even at Embedded World in Nuremberg.
Around two weeks ago, there were some talks at FOSDEM on FPGA open-source
toolchains, but it sounded like it's still quite some work to make
everything work. But it was nice to see all kinds of new and old tools to
simulate and debug a logic design and hardware.
I guess in around 2-3 weeks I can give better feedback on what's possible
to do with RISC-V for me personally.

Yeah, I had said I would post my FPGA code to github, but then got so busy
with stuff at work that I never did. I still have that FPGA project and
could still post it if I can find a 4 hour window to work on it (I wanted
to clean the code up a bit first).
I have NuttX running on one of the 2 RISC-V cores in my ASIC also, mainly
because it is basically the same as the core running in the FPGA. I'll
have to check out the SiFive board ... haven't really had time to poke my
head up to look around for the past year. I worked with one of the guys at
SiFive when he was working on the debug spec for RISC-V.
I am not aware that anyone is working with RISC-V and NuttX now. Ken
Pettit did the NuttX port some time back and I don't think it has been
I have never used it since I have no RISC-V hardware (and don't do FPGAs
anyway). Is there a ready-to-use RISC-V platform with debugger available?
I know of the SiFive board on Crowd Suppy, but I know nothing about using
it (and hence, I am too intimidated to buy one).
