Precursor Mobile, Open-Hardware, RISC-V System-on-Chip (SoC) Seeks Crowdfuning


For the DIYers.

In via @deejayiwan.

"CPU Emulation: While the reference FPGA ships with a 32-bit RISC-V CPU running at 100MHz, it can be reconfigured to emulate a wide range of retro-CPUs, from the 6502 to the Z-80 to something we’ve never even heard of. Furthermore, Precursor’s FPGA-based design can accurately emulate old sound chips in hardware, and its modular keyboard can be swapped out for an alternative that more closely resembles your favorite old controller. Be warned, however: it will no longer fit in your pocket if you mount a joystick on it."

Audio features:

Audio with safe defaults

Integrated 0.7 W speaker for notifications

Vibration motor

3.5 mm headset jack

No integrated microphone – audio surveillance is not possible when headset is unplugged

Bidirectional I²S interface for audio

You can find full details here.

Cool handheld device.

  1. "...it will no longer fit in your pocket if you mount a joystick on it." Unless, of course, you want people to say, "Are you glad to see me or is that a joystick in your pocket?"
