As background, the lowRISC project aims to produce a fully open-source SoC using the RISC-V instruction set architecture and bring it to volume production. We’ve just released this document to describe in more detail our plans for tagged memory (not exactly the rebirth of the LISP machine, but has uses for security, debug/performance analysis, and many more) and minion cores (use to implement I/O peripherals in software, or for isolated secure execution, or …). I’d really welcome your thoughts.

    More general comment: As a low-cost SoC junkie, the openness of the platform is very appealing. Good work.
