v7.2 Astrobe for RISC5 has now been released. This latest version has been ported to an additional two boards. A total of six Artix-7 and Spartan-7 development boards from Digilent are now supported.

A summary of the new features included in this release are in What's New in Astrobe for RISC5.

Astrobe for RISC5 is a free unlimited Windows version of the Astrobe IDE. Register your name and email address to download the software.

Developers can use Astrobe to edit and compile, embedded real-time Oberon applications. These can then be uploaded and executed on an FPGA RISC5 development system. The compiled applications produced by Astrobe can be executed on a minimal embedded version of the Project Oberon OS. Here is the AutoCAD Slide demo example running on a Digilent Arty S7 board:
