Fwew.. what a pain. That larger CPLD had tons of space but due to those longer wires there was quite a bit of noise that made it tricky to clean up. After weeks of working on this guy I was finally able to get it working.
That's it for the CPU/Video related customs which means I can start preparing the RTL for the FPGA development platform. Stay tuned for those updates.. I hope to start a video series that captures the progress from here on out.
