I understood that at least the nicer Central Point Option Boards (there
were several different ones made) don't have any data decoder in hardware
at all. The hardware simply records when transitions take place, and
then pass this list to the software that does the decoding.

(The Catweasel seems to work on the same principle, but it doesn't come
with the decoding software...)
