I came upon this guide to datasheets from 1998 on the Allegro Microsystems website. This feels 1995 to me.
The only #fpgawars on my mind are the wars to find parts.
Parts are harder to find than they were in in 1999. At least then, it was mainly tants, and you could work around that with larger-package electrolytics. Today for many families of FPGA, I just can't get any version of them for at least a year or TWO.
I miss when I could reliably sell my old stuff on E-Bay auctions.
I first saw it my 20s, so it feels like exciting new technology still, but it is not.
