PS Max I put FPGA fundamentals into the search box of the EETimes home page and I see you did something on this in 2008...however I get 404 errors on all of the links. Maybe you could resurrect that as a starting point? Not sure if I have seen it before...

PPS. Must have mis-spelt something, your Fundamentals of FPGAs is here http://www.eetimes.com/electrical-engineers/education-training/courses/4000134/Fundamentals-of-FPGAs And very good it is too, almost exactly what I asked for. So you can have the next 3 sundays off....

Max, very good mythbusting material. I recall that National Semi had stacked ICs for the NSC800, a Z-80 clone. You could simply plug RAM chips, eeprom, and a peripherals chip on top of the processor, to have a full computer on the DIP-40-pin socket of the processor. It could be called a "paleo-3D" technology [grin]. - Jonny

That was a fantastic summary. Thanks for spending the time to educate us that little bit more.

Thank you so much for your kind words -- I was worried about putting some of the simple stuff in, but for myself when I'm reading something by someone else, I always like to get the history and suchlike...

Hi Max, Great job! As mentioned above, monolithic 3D deserves to be added. A similar job on various memory technologies: volatile (SRAM, S/DRAM etc.), non-volatile (E/E/PROM, NAND/NOR Flash etc.) would be very nice.... when you have time, no pressure (grin)

Nice explanations, great figures. That last one really makes me wonder how to heat sink..
