ADSP-21571 Interface to FPGA

Hello, I'm still using the TigerSharc ADSP-201 DSP and interface to an FPGA over the external Data/Address bus. The interfacing to FPGA was very easy and very powerful using the Pipeline protocol. I was looking at the latest Sharc processor and foudn the ADSP-21571 and have two questions for the forum:

How easy it is to interfaced with an FPGA?

How easy is it to program the two DSP cores? Is it a software nightmare?

Thanks,

Joe
