    1. An Arduino is nothing like a CPLD. They’re capable of completely different things and you’d buy whatever is most suitable for your task. There are things which a CPLD would easily do but would be difficult with a microcontroller. The same applies in reverse as well. As the article text states, a CPLD is useful to allow you to build custom logic. Replicating that in a microcontroller would be hard unless you’re happy with very slow logic and odd timings.
