[sdiy] Analysis of the TB-303 CPU timing

I'm currently working on a TB-303 replacement CPU for the RE-303 project.

Since there is not too much information available, and a lot of 
speculations are running wild on the net, I tried to clear things up a bit.

Someone from the RE-303 forums loaned me an original CPU and I hooked it 
up to a logic analyzer and did some extensive testing and measurement 

I summed up my findings in a short paper available here:

I have to admit, a lot of it is definitely from the "hear the fleas 
cough" category, as we say in Germany, but at least we now have data 
coming from a real CPU.

Comments are welcome. I'm a bit rusty in writing proper papers ;)
