Interesting find Mog! Thanks for the link to the PowerPoint
presentation. I had recently been thinking about Erlang and hardware
designs, so this is a welcome discovery.

Kenneth, Bjorn, Joe, or Robert:

Are either of the authors of the presentation (Peter Lundell and Robert
Tjarnstrom) still at Ericsson? Does anyone know what became of this
work, and if, as Mog suggests, there's any chance of having it see the
light of day? I'm particularly interested in the VHDL implementation and
testbench mentioned in the PowerPoint presentation, but documentation,
attendant Erlang prototype code, notes, etc. would also be very welcome.
