comment Can we simulate FPGA board?
(Presumably you can't use the Arduio sketches to interact with a real breadboard without actually possessing an Arduino either?)

The Altera simulator does simulate the FPGA. But it doesn't simulate anything outside the FPGA. I think that's what you're missing.

The simulation necessarily is much slower than the real thing. So your simulated keyboard interface can't talk to a real keyboard. This is what I meant by clever testbenches: you could have the simulation software detect keypresses and turn them into a stream of PS/2 or USB transactions at simulation speed. I had a simulator once which used Linux TUN/TAP to speak to real Ethernet by doing exactly that.

That's the kind of simulation you ruled out in the other answer. The Altera tools will let you simulate in software, but when doing so you cannot interact with real hardware.

That seems to be describing a simulation of the ARM core, with the capacity to connect to a simulation of the rest of the FPGA.

comment How a multicore processor is initialized?
(Consider also what happens if you have multiple processors running during a handover from bootloader to operating system: all processors need to transition at the same time.)

comment How a multicore processor is initialized?
Well, in general there are only two possibilities: (a) all processors start running or (b) one starts running with the others suspended. If (a), then the writer of the boot ROM has to do more synchronisation work. This document says the ARM boot sequence is basically the same, starting in WFI: linux-arm.org/pub/LinuxPlatform/RealViewLink/…

comment Light LED light?
Ah - just seen the flexibility requirement. That rules out a PCB and you may have long term problems with solder joints if you're not careful.

comment Light LED light?
Those bars are nifty: I believe they're a thin layer of copper-coated Teflon bonded to aluminium to make a PCB onto which the LEDs are soldered. If you want all your LEDs in a bunch then it's well worth considering making a small PCB, especially if you want to make more than one of these.

comment Barebones microprocessor module with tons of RAM
Seconding that - if the Pi is too pricey your expectations are unrealistic. 8G is a lot of RAM, and a small PC is the best option.
