Embedded systems and their applications are becoming ubiquitous and transparent. Nowadays, the designers need to implement both hardware and software as fast as they can to face the competition. Hence tools and IPs became an important factor of the equation. In this paper, we present a synthesizable core similar to the microarchitecture of Tanenbaum's (2006) JVM processor. The core is an implementation of a subset of Microsoft's CIL (Common Intermediate Language). We seek to accelerate the development of embedded software by providing a platform onto which the whole .NET framework (C#, Visual Basic.NET...) (along with its object-oriented approach) could execute. We used a Xilinx Virtex II Pro as the prototyping platform.
