It isn't complete yet, but what I have seems to work exactly the way I want, and there's enough here to build a physical circuit to test the design's core function. Each symbol has a refdes, none have been assigned footprints or slots (since neither seems like it would make sense in this case).

I realize this is an older type of chip, but they are easy to purchase from Digikey and the like, and my current project only calls for enough logic to fill one of these - a CPLD or FPGA is just plain overkill.

For a more modern approach to tiny programmable logic take a look at
the Silego GreenPak.  GreenPak1 may be too small for your circuit, but
GreenPak2 may be a good fit:


It's an interesting and versatile approach to tiny programmable logic.
