LispOS on a 68000
Wed, 20 May 1998 16:29:18 -0500
I have looked at the ARM, Mitsubishi, and IDT stuff.
At this point I still think that I would rather go
for the elegant approach rather than the brute force
approach. So, I am still planning on using something
in the 680x0 line and migrating it later to the PPC
or ColdFire series.
I still have many questions:
Where can I find details about how tag bits are
implemented and their rationale.
I am still trying to decide on a bus. VME is nice
but the components hurt price wise. ISA reeks, PCI
reeks. I am interested in how a switching bus is
implemented, ala SGI.
Does it make sense to use a separate processor for
concurrent GC? I am still getting up to speed on GC
so please tolerate strange questions.
