Hi guys,
	from what I have seen you are wanting to produce an ASIC. Just wondering
what would be involved if a person were to use a large high speed FPGA as a
processor.  Large devices are in the order of 10M gate running at 400MHz, from 
Xilinx.  This allows you to design a computer which can be changed.  The speed
tracks fpga technology and as larger faster fpga's are release so to will the
processor grow.  With some of these fpga's sections can be reprogrammed in
operation.  This allows for possible software acceleration tailored to a
specific application eq. graphics or sound processing.

cheers Justin
