I'm surprised that CAD drawings for the ASICs and whatnot didn't escape along with the death of Commodore. It seems to me they might be just late enough in the game that a series of imports through successive versions of the design software would get you to the point where you could just push it onto an FPGA. I used to program on a massively parallel system designed to do that kind of thing (the Sarnoff Labs "Princeton Engine" used 1024 processors in a SIMD configuration to emulate a DSP). You would design your DSP and then push it over onto the PE and run signals through it to see if it did what it was supposed to, so you could do rapid prototyping of DSPs before going to silicon.
