When I look into FPGAs for Propeller 1 or 2 replicas, I cannot help but wonder if there is any interest in creating an alternative that uses Forth CPUs rather than Cogs that require SPIN and PASM.
My great enthusiasm for Forth on the Propeller comes about by having 8 CPUs share come i/o and a common Forth dictionary access. It just seems to me that one might completely eliminate the using PASM by providing a different kind of CPU architecture. There already are Forth CPUs in FPGA that have proven themselves, and actually provide excellent speed performance.
I do realize that is a big fork from the current evolution from Propeller1 to Propeller2, but I am asking is it at all worthwhile and valid.
