Altera introduces Max V CPLD

Posted on Wednesday, December 8th, 2010 in Chips, documentation by the machinegeek

Altera has introduced their Max V family of CPLDs. Features include operation from a single 1.8 volt external supply for device core, internal oscillator, user flash memory block of up to 8 Kbits for non-volatile storage with up to 1000 read/write cycles, and multiVolt I/O interface supporting 3.3, 2.5, 1.8, 1.5 and 1.2-Volt logic levels. In system programming can be accomplished with any of the familiar Altera “Blaster” cables. Single unit prices start under a dollar, and a dev kit will reportedly ship in February. Complete documentation is available on the Altera website.

    I’m not really into CPLD’s (or FPGA’s) currently, but this seems like it’s coming in at a half-decent price point $1.70 and $4.90 for 64 and 192 macro cells, respectively. Anyone have a sense of what can be accomplished with this class of device?
