LOL, sod the P96 licensing status, if the new owners over reach - then other options will appear - this new discussion is far more interesting!

FPGA's do no pretending at all, gate for gate logic - identical in operation.

I wonder if this argument has any roots that stem from a notion of : that non-volatile logic systems are REAL where where volatile ones are not ?

@Shk - well put =)

@O/T Thread
When Motorola were developing the 68000 processor they would have engineers holding cards that represented logic gates of the CPU - before the CPU was even built - were they emulating it or did the ASIC chip produced emulate them?

... or perhaps, as matthey has suggested - they synthesised it?
