Part IV: Programmable Devices

CEC Semester Two 2012
July 26, 2012 - 2:00pm EDT

In this session, we consider the earliest forms of programmable logic devices (PLDs), including PROMs, PLAs, PALs, and GALs, many of which are still in use to this day. Next we consider the evolution from simple PLDs (SPLDs) to complex PLDs (CPLDs). Also, we consider the problems with ASICs/SoCs and the gap between SPLDs/CPLDs and ASICs/SoCs that led to the introduction of FPGAs. In addition to discussing FPGAs in some detail, we consider the various programming technologies that may be used.
