To *maybe* bring this back to a bit more timing related region of internet space:

To make any of these parts really do timing "stuff" (as opposed to simply display strings) you need some glue. A CPLD or better yet an FPGA can give you a *lot* of glue for the money. A board with a Cyclone V and a K60 CPU might be able to do quite a bit for not a lot of money. Get "some guy in Australia" to make them up cheap ….

Duck and run for cover …..
