I can live with that - 24 bits is really cool from a DSP point of view. 140dB
range and you can do two data moves and one arithmetic op with a 24-bit
The only modern day 24-bitter that I know of is the Motorola DSP56XX family.
Great for fixed point ( fractional ) number crunching.

How about stuffing old silicon into FPGA's ?
