Building a Lisp Machine

Building a Lisp Machine

On wednesday 19th of November, the results of this autumn's hardware project (TDT4295) were presented. Fourteen students have collaborated in constructing a Lisp machine (IGOR) from scratch.

The students worked in four sub-groups with different responsibilites (PCB, AVR, FPGA, and Microcode) to achieve the ultimate goal - a running, working Lisp machine. The construction took three months of though deadlines, but the goal was reached.
