So this guy is building his own RISC-V CPU

Did I mention RISC-V in the last posting? Turns out that Robert Baruch is building his own RISC-V CPU [YouTube] out of chips.
The LMARV-1 (Learn Me A Risc-V, version 1) is a RISC-V processor built out of MSI and LSI chips. You can point to pieces of the processor and see the data flow. It should be a nice way of demonstrating how RISC-V works and how simple it is to implement.
The video also includes a good introduction to RISC-V itself. (Via Hackaday)
