Poll : What's stopping FPGA-based PowerPC accelerators from being developed?
Likely licensing issues - cloning the PowerPC architecture would put the developer at risk
Likely the lack of Kickstarter fundraiser - the undertaking would cost a lot of money
Another problem [please specify in the thread]

Why would NXP sponsor a hobby project by a Huawei developer?

"Why would anyone be interested in sponsoring a 68k"
+
"Why would NXP sponsor a hobby project"

Hard to think any good/sane business reason.

So they need to act insane, like we do?

Is that too much to ask?

@all

Not exactly a FPGA, but imagine being able to plug inn a Killer NIC into a Vampire. At least you can run Quake really fast.
