This is why I decided to handle this kind of complexity with an FPGA
with embedded (Linux-) Processor. The fast stuff can be done in HDL
while the processor can take it's time to do the complex stuff. And we
only have a single chip that (other than special processor chips) is
very unlikely to become unavailable any time soon. And if the FPGA chip
used is discontinued, there will very likely be a bigger compatible one.
