The N.I.G.E. Machine [by Andrew Read] is a complete computer system implemented on an FPGA development board. It comprises a 32 bit soft-core processor optimized for the FORTH language, a set of peripheral hardware modules, and FORTH system software. The system is primarily designed to support the rapid prototyping of experimental scientific apparatus. The N.I.G.E. Machine has been presented in papers at EuroFORTH:

2012: The N.I.G.E. Machine: an FPGA based micro-computer system for prototyping experimental scientific hardware (pdf)

2013: Optimizing memory access design for a 32 bit FORTH processor (pdf)
Video of the presentation (40 mins)

2014: Concept and implementation of an extended return stack to enhance subroutine and exception handling in FORTH (pdf)
Video of the presentation (25 mins)
