Hi All,

>> I don't think that it is a good idea to use obsolete hardware

>Obsolete does not mean no-longer-available :)

I agree! Provided we design sensible things...

PIC, CPLD's etc may be the craze of the day, who knows if they will be
redundant tomorrow. The 65816 may have been redundant long before the SCPU
came about if it wasn't for Nintendo licensing the cores.... The good thing
with CPLD's etc is that the design is software, and hopefully there should
always be a chip which fits it, even if it is far better in performance than
the original.
