Xilinx CPLD Development Kit
Here’s a brief article about an attractive development kit from our friends at Xilinx, which is not only rich in contents but also affordable for the hobbyist! The board is supplied ready-built and comes with two CD-ROMs crammed with software.PALs and GALs never really made it into the world of hobby electronics, despite the fact that these components are instrumental in vast component count reductions, even accepting changes to their contents and so obviating the need to build yet another version of the circuit. Apparently, in the eyes of many hobbyists these advantages do not justify the cost of a suitable programmer, the associated design software and a pile of data books.
