A base system for performing research in prototyping extensions to the LEON processor system in an interactive remote manner was implemented. A flow has been set up to convert C programs into a specific format to be loaded into a UDP packet payload. Control software has been developed to interact with the leon ctrl hardware via the internet. Control hardware has been developed to direct the actions of the LEON processor system. Finally, a SDRAM interface is in development that will aid in load-ing an OS, such as Linux, into the Liquid processor platform.
