CPLDs What are CPLDs? CPLDs stand for complex programmable logic devices. They are used to implement complex combinational or sequential circuits. They are made up of logic array blocks, programmable interconnects and I/O blocks.Logic Array Blocks Logic array blocks consist of macro cells, inward / non inward metrics, and support for flip flops ICs that allow you to implement sequential circuits. Programmable Interconnects Programmable interconnects are used to disperse signals for one logic array block to anotherI/O Blocks I/O blocks are pins that can be programmed as an input pin, output pin or both. Features and Benefits Non-volatile configuration memory CPLD can function immediately on start-up as there is no ROM required Large number of gates available, typically thousands to tens of thousands On-chip non-volatile memory Low-power requirements Easy to useWhere would find a CPLD? High performance, critical applications Digital designs to perform the function of a boot loader Loading configuration data of a field programmable gate array from non-volatile memory Small design applications like dress decoding Cost sensitive, battery operated portable devicesHow do FPGA differ from CPLDs? FPGA stands for Field Programmable Gate Array. FPGAs are small semiconductor devices known as integrated circuits, or ICs for short. FPGAs are built from one basic logic cell, duplicated hundreds of time. FPGAs are found in radar systems, military hardware, medical devices and telecommunicationsApplications of CPLDCPLDs are ideal for high performance, control applications and digital designs to perform boot loader functions. We offer cost effective CPLDs for portables devices such as phones tablets and smaller address decoding designs applications.
