OK, then. Better get to work on a replacement for the FPGA compiler
tools. Go to www.xilinx.com and www.altera.com and get all the public 
information there. Good luck. When you're done with that you can work 
on VHDL and Verilog compilers that can work with your FPGA compilers. 
Fortunately some of that work is already done which should save 
you a couple of years of effort.

FPGAs are not microprocessors but they are soft-loaded and it's quite
possible that some of the devices we are talking about contain those
