John -

I'd be happy to program GAL's, you have better things to do!

If Jeff, Paul and Greg would email me directly we can work out shipping.

BTW, do you recommend 15ns or 25ns parts?

Guy’s I’d rather not get into the GAL burning business, just ordering and shipping this number of board is a real chore.
Gary if you could do the GAL’s that would really be great.  I’m not sure how you want to handle it, get a bunch from Jameco and send via US mail would be the easiest, I suppose.

I’m up to my eyeballs in stuff here with more boards coming, spending more time on that hopefully will provide more users with much more to play with. Worse still I a bunch or travel trips due.

As I outlined previously the reality is that most boards from now on will require one or two GAL’s.  They are dirt cheap and very easy to program with PALSAM.    I highly recommend  “users” get familiar with them.

For the real “die hard’s”,  I also getting into CPLD’s.  These are essentially super GAL’s. On the current 80486 prototype one PLCC based CPLD would replace 6 GAL’s.   However in that case I’ll probably supply the chip since the number of users I assume will be less.
