Milkymist and open source hardware

With the simultaneous reduction of the cost and increased availability of dense and performant FPGAs, it now becomes possible for individuals to design digital chips, and therefore push the limits of free software down to the digital design. Milkymist is one of the current biggest open hardware projects, designing a system-on-chip with performance and resource utilization in mind, specifically for real-time video shows and artistic events.

The conference will present the origins of the project, the various hardware opening levels, Milkymist features, a brief explanations of the development methods, and a live demonstration of a prototype (including Linux running on Milkymist hardware).
