RISCY modifications possibilties
#2
Hello,

First of all RI5CY already has a HW loop controller, so technically no change is needed there.

Any addition to the processor functionality will need some additional support from the SW chain. It is of course possible that you add these and modify the SDK so that it works with these additions as well. But this is not 'automatic' and we do not really have a manual and step by step instructions for it. So technically possible, but practically involved. 

You can always use part of what we offer standalone (i.e. RI5CY without the SDK) and just patch the C compiler for your changes as well.

The other question is, once you made the changes, would we include them in the distribution and integrate your solution as part of our distribution? That is also possible in theory, but we need to maintain compatibility to existing projects and operation targets for the RI5CY core. A branch in this case would be the more pragmatic approach.

I am not sure if this answers the question
