Great Mschulz

So this will be much faster than the emulator Pistorm is using now?

Maybe AROS 68k can be used?

I have no knowledge about MiSTer From my side I actively develop Emu68 as standalone bare metal and as PiStorm bare metal

Yes very cool project, I would also love to see this brought over to the MiSTer one day!

166Mips only 25% predicted speed?! Definitely worthy of Patreonage.

@NovaCoder I imagine this could come to MiSTer (Are there any hybrid cores at the moment on MiSTer?) but how good would the 800MHz ARM Cortex-A9 in MiSTer be compared to Pi3B's 1.3GHz Cortex-A53?

Hi @mschulz, and thanks for the work you seem to be putting on this!

What is supposed to come out of this? A functional native Amiga OS running on the Pi3/4 baremetal?

One usage is in PiSTorm. The "budget" 680x0 accelerator card.

@alexh: Yes, that's clear to me. But I am not really interested in old hardware (prone to fail, expensive...) even if I have several Amiga models: it has no future, it's a dead-end.

What I would expect from a project like this is being able to run Amiga on inexpensive and common hw like the Pi3/4, in standalone fashion. Is that also a goal nowadays?

If your thinking of an amithlon type environment I've not heard that discussed. Just an alternate processor model for UAE which already runs on the Pi under linux and other os

The reason AROS ARM stalled was the USB drivers were not open source and the binary blobs used by Linux didn't port to AROS properly. (It was tried though.) Perhaps @mschulz can comment further.

One possibility is running a RasPi Compute Module 3 or 4 plugged into a MiniMig-style FPGA board instead of an off-the-shelf Pi 3 or 4.

@Samurai_crow
I hope USB driver issues have been resolved by now!
Also, there's Circle (https://github.com/rsta2/circle) which allows baremetal C programs to be deployed on the Pi relatively easy.

@Gaula92

It's a C++ environment, not C, but which also provides some add-on C Libraries, according to it's Overview
