I wonder how long it took to develop the CMU200, considering its complexity and engineering...

Think the better question is "how big was the team" ;-)

Yes, of course. I meant "how long" in "man years"...

Still, it is impressive when you are messing inside a CMU200: so many modules, each with several boards, custom IC's, FPGA, software, etc.

Then all the PCB layout, circuit design, materials (silver plated modules, etc.).

I can't begin to imagine how much work, research, development went into such a device.

No wonder they were sold new at around 100.000 Euro (?).

Pretty sure for 100k you got a base unit and not much else...
