    Thank you, I will start my develop system back up again and check out the design graphically :-) Not sure why email address is being cut off?? @yahoo.comĀ

      Quartus II will let you design graphically or with hardware description language (VHDL and Verilog).
      I don't think they have a way to output VHDL from a graphic design; these are just design options that they can compile to FPGA binary code.  Quartus II is available from the Altera web site.
      I can send you some screen shots if you email me a real email address.

MAXII has 5V tolerant inputs (if you are careful) or you can make it more robust with external diode circuits. That's what I gather from an app note I looked through. I'm hopeful they will play well interfacing to old interfaces and buses.  I'm open to suggestions regarding if this ISN'T a good choice for this use.
