FPGA software requires a pee sea sadly enough. I suspect a 8080 could do
PCB or CUSTOM
IC design if you could use a programable character set on a terminal.
When you think about it
it is the hidden documentaion in closed hardware that is the problem. I
open source FPGA
could be done as a custom chip but getting around the hardware patents
is the problem..
