Modesty is a FPGA based platform project developed for educational purposes, rapid prototyping and quick design starts. CoreX is the name of the first processor platform consisting of two or more soft processors running different operating systems. In the design process we will evalute the following soft processors:

Here are some of things we will investigate:

  • Maximum clock frequency
  • Size in number of LUTs
  • Design environment
  • Complexity
  • Linux and RTOS installations

We will use the CoreMark benchmark to measure the performance of the soft processors used in an embedded system.
