Hi, I may be wrong, but I think what Dave is trying to explain is something similar (or more sophisticated) to this... Pictures from Mr. Mark Smith in this FB thread where he describe his attempt to replace an old CPLD on a TC2068. I hope it can help... ;) https://scontent.fcgh5-1.fna.fbcdn.net/v/t1...
