Project Of The Month - October -Ruben - XMOS BIT Scheme/Xbee

Post by jason »


Congratulations to Ruben who is this months winner for his XMOS BIT Scheme / XBee project which has been released under the GPL licence.


A quote from Ruben's project is as follows:
XMOS BIT Scheme is a Scheme interpreter for XMOS chips. It is byte code based, in order to reduce memory size to fit inside the available 64KB of memory. The interpreter exploits the multi-threaded nature of this architecture by running multiple interpreters in parallel, concretely one interpreter on each core. In addition, each interpreter contains abstractions to manage this concurrency and to exploit features specific of the XMOS hardware. Such abstractions include sending messages between interpreters over channels, performing IO, using timers. Concretely, XMOS BIT Scheme enables an event-driven style for programming multi-core embedded systems in Scheme. More information can be found on
Once again well done to Ruben, please do check out his project here!

Looking towards November, please submit your nominations to the main POTM thread here (please ensure criteria are met detailed in this post if you wish to be considered).
