Support for true LVDS or emulated LVDS output

Hi all, could someone please advise which CPLDs (or even FPGAs) support LVDS or emulated LVDS outputs? I have a design with an Intel CPLD part no. 5M40ZE64A5N but I can't get hold of them anymore - no more stock anywhere I look. My design has 25 I/O pins in total, 8 of them are differential outputs. 

This replacement device I'm looking for could be bigger in size and it doesn't really matter how we program it, but it would be a bonus if it was one-time programmable.

Thanks in advance!

Most mid to high end CPLD and FPGA devices support LVDS I/O at this point.

The MAX V is still in active production, but like all FPGA/CPLD devices now is severely supply constrained.

Lead times are out in the 6 mos to 12 mos time frame. Pretty much for any device from any vendor.

Bigger (and smaller) MAX V devices exist, some with compatible I/O footprints.

One time programmable CPLDs and FPGAs are not a thing anymore. Haven't seen one in a long time.
