Altera Stratix FPGA with an softcore embedded NIOS II 32-bit processor.
Plan: start off with everything in C, profile and then do incremental
software/hardware partition.

I need to get into VHDL/FPGA/logic design again, only barely touched the
topic with a single course and a single hands-on training.

There is some initial reading for me to do.

I noticed the current source code is not annotated by comment. Is there
any interest in having the code commented as I will probably start doing
so for my own good.
