Question: Do you think a full-duplex audio device init/config and playback/rec engine would be a good fit for an FPGA? It's basically a state machine, right? the codec says "here's a buffer" or "gimme a buffer" and the DMA controller does it's job. Why has nobody done low-latency computer audio as a driver presented in hardware?

    Limited utility? Some vendors use FPGA for live mixing/routing/etc (e.g. RME), but when it comes to higher latency stuff like dealing with disk, might as well let a general purpose CPU do that?
