I have just downloaded the latest arrayForth and polyForth systems for the GreenArrays GA144 EV001 evaluation board, dusted down the eval board and installed it...
Back in ~1978 I accidentally came across microForth for the COSMAC computer, with a 2 MHz CDP1802 and 12K of RAM, and typed 1 1 + . for the first time.
So nothing new here, I still get the answer 2, and Greg's saneForth Terminal looks very DOS-like (except that it actually runs under Win7 64 bit).
But this is actually something very different :
I also ran a speed test :
Speed wise, the combination of GA144, SPI EEPROM and SRAM, running polyForth looks plenty fast enough for the sort of embedded apps I usually work with.
All in all it could compete with an MSP430, 8051 or a PIC except that only with the GA144 do you get so many fast cores with fast I/O to play with.
The GA144 with polyForth seems to be to good not to use...
Just sharing my excitement - well done to all the GreenArray folks!
