An alternative to the CPLD
is the use of a field-programmable gate array (FPGA) for the node of sensors .
interface board has 15 single-ended PWM input signals, 16 differential PWM output signals, 4 differential Brake output signals and a differential Inverter Enable output signal.
Most designers agree that a CPLD
device must have embedded non-volatile memory to provide a single chip solution that boots quickly.
With these IP cores, the MAX II family will take CPLD
design into new territory," said Justin Cowling, Altera's director of marketing for Altera's IP business unit.

Using a CPLD
to handle data acquisition interrupts will off-load interrupt requests to the microprocessor and save power.
To meet the demands of the battery-powered, portable market place, CPLDs
will need to deliver on four key elements: power, performance, price, and size," said Evert Wolsheimer, Xilinx vice president and general manager of the CPLD

This new class of Crossover Programmable Logic device supports applications that traditionally have been addressed either by high density CPLDs
or low capacity FPGAs, but with a more comprehensive and cost-effective architecture and technology.
The Synplify software takes designs written in VHDL or Verilog as input, and compiles, optimizes and maps them into efficient, high-performance netlists for all leading CPLD
and FPGA devices.
0 provides instant access not only to the latest ispXP(TM) technology, but also to all Lattice FPGA, FPSC, CPLD
and SPLD programmable devices.
Our companion solution provides the unique combination of system performance at very low power, a void left unaddressed by traditional FPGA and CPLD
