@Evariste  Indeed! The presenter was clear this is ambitious. He hopes four years and 200+ people gets him close.

    As for open source cores, it seems like RISC-V is getting commercial traction for deeply embedded cores in an SoC.

It's a nice idea, but difficult to implement.  There are already open source cores (of perhaps indeterminate quality) which don't seem to get used often.

DARPA doesnt seem to have more info on the projects online yet. The basic idea is to create a library of open source components and a set of tools to place and test them as SoCs.

I'd be interested in more details about this project.  I didn't quite understand the scope of the "silicon compiler".  Does this involve some new sort of HDL?  How would one incorporate the open-source cores?

When Edgar ordered his new scope, he thought “3000A” was the model number, not the current draw.
