Why? Have you ever compiled code for an FPGA? DId you see that you have to limk it with modules provided by Altera/Intel/... to make something working? Are these modules open source? No!alexh wrote:The open source license agreements for MiniMig and Suska (while different) are both of the kind which prevent their source being used in closed source projects. The Apollo team will have to "start again" or secure new license agreements. Or perhaps use two FPGA's on their stand alone versions.
Coldfire is not open source. 68000-68060 are not open source. But you accept this with Firebee, you accept it by using ST/STE/TT/Falcon/Amiga/... Not even original TOS (or AMiga OS) is Open Source.
So what's the problem when Apollo core is closed, as long it is well documented that you can program it, or you can include it into your own FPGA design. The sourrounding SAGA-VHDL-Chipset is opensource, SuperVidel is opensource, so it's fine to marry them.
