    Gotcha thanks!

    Wondering why you would want to run an OS like Linux on an SSD controller? Maybe I don't understand embedded computing well enough to judge though?

    If it exists, I'd like binutils to assemble for it.

    Their isa was used because like risc-v you could enable and disabled instructions that you wanted. risc-v is free though and has way better software support. Making this isa is therefore pretty pointless, they should have just designed some risc-v cores.
