That's generally what is to be expected. However, there are support chips that will definitely not fit into a CPLD, for example the RIOT (due to the RAM and/or ROM). Also the CIA is actually quite a complex chip and you will need a really big CPLD to handle it. Of course, also VIC, VDC and TED chips will reauire a FPGA as well. > I have a question for anyone that is interested in using FPGA/CPLD > emulated parts: How important is it that the PCB of a drop in > replacement stay strictly in the foot print of a 40/48 pin chip or is > the PCB okay to be wider than .6” once its .3-.4” above the socket it’s > inserted into? For me it's okay if it's larger, but it wuld be much better if it were not because someone might want to stick two such "chips" next to each other. But it's not critical.
