  If someone was to provide a working set of units, I could try them all
out.  I could try the multiplier unit aswell as the FPGAs I am using are
relatively large (approximately 40000 Look up tables/ Flip Flops units).
It might not fit but its always worth a try.

  I am curious about the target of the F-CPU.  A lot of the design seems
to be oriented towards FPGAs and their four input logic, yet the
multiplier most certainly is not.  So my question simply is:  What is the
current target platform for the first F-CPU?  Is it an FPGA or a custom
