Tachyon Forth


Tachyon was originally developed for the Parallax Propeller 8-core MCU because I need to do more and faster, and within the the limited memory, in order to produce firmware for my commercial embedded hardware products.
When the much vaunted successor, the P2 was introduced, then Tachyon was upgraded and even built into the P2 ROM as TAQOZ. Source code can be sent or pasted from the PC terminal at high speed (921,600 default) without any terminal delays and compiled into RAM ready for backup into SD or Flash.
TAQOZ RELOADED, the full version of Tachyon for the P2 can be booted from SD cards or Flash and has all the tools needed to develop and test code interactively on the target MCU.

Please browse the wiki pages for howtos and information on all matters regarding Tachyon/TAQOZ and the P1 and P2.
