A beginner’s CPLD tutorial

Posted on Wednesday, March 23rd, 2011 in CPLD, documentation by the machinegeek

Here’s a simple CPLD tutorial by Bitcycle.org which discusses detailed steps in the design and programming of a beginners first CPLD project. The project is adapted from Xilinx app note XAPP078, “XC9536 ISP Demo Board”. It uses the Xilinx XC9536 device, similar to the one on our CPLD development boards.

  • Pekka Akselin: This is ridiculous!? :-) We are back at 256(!) byte EPROMs that needed multiple, a handful, of voltages to run! :-(
  • KH: Let's try a back-of-envelope calc balancing energies. From MCP1700 datasheet, there are graphs for a 200mA load step. Estimate the energy shortfall as 12uJ. Say...
  • Daniel: It's been a week and my comment is still awaiting moderation. Apparently the CIA doesn't want their involvement known?

  • Max: I have a suspicion the hefty electrolytic cap might be some sort of cargo cult carry-over from other RF-based projects - for instance, I've seen...
