IT runs propeller code too :)

While it was advertised as SOFT-PROPELLER, it was not until today it actually works as a Propeller.

Testing on Parallax Development Board, flashed the SPIN code into EEPROM on Parallax board, and well Soft-Propeller configures itself from SPI flash as propeller and then loads prop code from EEPROM.

Soft-Propeller has no on-board EEPROM, but this can be emulated in FPGA there are enough block rams free.

Utilzation:

FF: 15%

LUT: 50%

BRAM; 33%
