27C512 Emulator

An open-ended design

27C512 Emulator
More and more electronics hobbyists and professionals are using CPLDs to implement circuits. In this article, we work through the entire design process for a CPLD project from start to finish using a practical example. The result is a handy 27C512 EPROM emulator that is useful for debugging microcontroller systems.
