The Am2900 Family of devices no longer exist as products
Where to find it now:
AMD no longer produces the Am2910 but it lives on in emulators,
FPGAs, PLAs and code. In the current listings, I found it as a classroom
exercise in Design Systhesis, in another form as a megafunction
(IP) and in a design completed as a lab exercise (complete with
the Am2901). It was just "too cool to lose" as far as
the design community is concerned.
As an IP:
An IP product - Intellectual Property - or "megafunction"
- that allows the functionality of a controller to be "dropped
into" a much larger ASIC.

The Am2910 in Verilog
They have been coded in VHDL, coded in Verilog and
emulated by several companies.
