That issue has to be solved after Silktorrent as a software project is complete. 



Multi-CPU-machines from Microcontrollers or Cheap CPLD-s and FPGA-s

Each MCU runs a virtual machine that simulates a CPU-core or some other block of a CPU. The simulated multi-core-CPU has also memory management functionality. Pascal programs are compiled for running on the simulated CPU.


Custom Microchips

What is needed is devices for creating individual prototype electronics chips. Scanning UV-beam based "masking" technology has been used in industry laboratories for decades for creating prototypes. Essentially, probably the initial bill of material contains: UV-LED, piezoelectric components from some piezoelectric microphones for precision-movement of the beam, some passive sound barrier (The University of Tartu Institute of Physics cellar room for using the various atomic microscopes is a source of inspiration), may be, later, some active sound barrier.
