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.
