[f-cpu] Re: Trained Animals

You will not receive any more of this type shit from me.
I too am tired - very tired as my only son passed on to another world yesterday.
I have been reviewing my presentation for the Microprocessor Forum 2001 over and over using an overhead projector.  This represents the culmination of 7 years of work.  Time sure does fly.  Over this time the improvements of FPGA's has been astronomical since their introduction in 1988-1989.  The only thing I can say about Xilinx is their performance gain has resulted from 0.18UM silicon.  One of my fellow logic designers selected them - he made far tooo many errors in his initial designs.
I chose Actel because they were a faster family.  He won that argument because of re-programmable ability - same as PAL's at the time. 
When I return from San Jose next week I will prepare for you fellows a complete summary.  Back to work.
