The Things You Should Know about Complex Programmable Logic Device (CPLD)

Most of you here very familiar with the Arduino-based microcontroller and you do know about the characteristics and features of some sort of Arduino. We’re not discussing about Arduino today, but will move on to another interesting topic, the Complex Programmable Logic Device. Do you know that a complex programmable logic device (CPLD) is a programmable logic device with complexity between that of PALs and FPGAs? The building block of a CPLD is the macro cell, where it can contain logic implementing “disjunctive normal form” expressions and more specialized logic operations. If you want to cut down the development cost, then you should apply the CPLD in the design, where a CPLD is cheaper, faster and can be programmed with your ideal pin-out configuration for simpler PCBs. Or, if you’re… Continue reading
