Opportunity for someone who speaks Mandarin
"One of our long-time customers is looking for a good
Forth programmer to help him on a project in China. You would need to be fluent
and literate in Mandarin. And Forth! Your Forth skills should include embedded
programming (in SwiftX would be a huge plus) and knowledge of the Atmel AVR
processors would also be helpful."

SEA, Paris, France
Forth developer(s) to create a bottom-up FPGA Forth
processor & environment
SEA designs and sells distributed
architecture solutions from preliminary analysis to final implementation,
targeting all industry sectors. We base our solutions on FPGA occasionally
including IP processors.
In order to enlarge our range of applications, we are
creating a complete development chain, from the IP processor to a full-fledged
ANS-Forth compatible environment.
Working under the highest safety requirements
(aerospace, transportation, ...), we must build this environment from the roots
up with features not found in usual Forth implementations.
SEA is tiny and fast growing.
This project phase one
deals with the roots: Processor simulation and design, VHDL IP development,
minimal interactive level utilities (target monitor, assembly, compiler, ..).
This phase is NOT for Public Domain diffusion and
shall be conducted under strict non-disclosure agreements.
Phase two (2-3 years from now) will bring the
environment to Public-Domain shared works to reach ANS-Forth compliance. This
phase is unlikely to require the same skills.
We are looking for one or more
skilled Forth developers to undertake the phase one of this long-term project.
- WIN32Forth processor simulator to evaluate the H/W
architecture and instruction set
- Teaming with the VHDL designer for the concept
- WIN32Forth cross-compiler, target Monitor, test
- ANS-Forth compatible project documentation
Required Skills and Experience:
to write such a compiler from scratch
Strong experience of low-level
Ability to team up with engineers located in France
