This isn't completely on-topic for this list, but I figured I'd ask
here since many of you do FPGA development on a daily basis -- some with
MIPS processor cores, or other embedded CPUs.
This semester at university, I'm in a group working to produce a
FPGA-based device -- likely some NTP-synced alarm clock that scrolls
We've been looking around on OpenCores.org, and noticed the Plasma
MIPS-1 processor core. We're also looking at JOP and OpenRISC,
but I'm liking the look of the Plasma core, since I'm already familiar
with MIPS machines.
We've got use of a NIOS-2 Development kit, which is based on an
Altera Cyclone-II FPGA. It's hoped we can just load another processor
core instead of the NIOS-2 softcore to drive the whole kit... Or would
we be better served getting another development board? (Or just using
the NIOS-2 softcore?)
Just wondering what peoples' experiences have been using this processor
core with Linux and/or µClinux? Are there other processor cores I could
load onto a FPGA that people would recommend?

I haven't lost my mind...
...it's backed up on a tape somewhere.
4. Although I'm very much a beginner ... my point is I don't know the
others _at all_ ... well, I know Java, but not JOP.
