Why did you create your own core for the FT900, instead of using proprietary stuff e.g. ARM?

We saw performance as a feature that could differentiate Bridgetek Chip from others in the market, especially in applications such as multimedia. The FT900 is a true 0 wait state solution even at maximum core clock speed (100MHz) offering performance of 3.1DMIPs/MHz. As a result, designers can have a blazing fast chip coupled with excellent connectivity options, Ethernet, USB, CAN bus, as well as a camera interface.
