Architecture of FPGAs and CPLDs A Tutorial

This paper provides a tutorial survey of architectures of commercially available high-capacity field-programmable devices (FPDs). We first define the relevant terminology in the field and then describe the recent evolution of FPDs. The three main categories of FPDs are delineated: Simple PLDs (SPLDs), Complex PLDs (CPLDs) and Field-Programmable Gate Arrays (FPGAs). We then give details of the architectures of all of the most important commercially available chips, and give examples of applications of each type of device.

The Publications page and the FPGA CAD Software are of interest for Digital Design Community.

Doug Joness Index - Douglas W. Jones

Computer Students can have look at the Obsolete Computer Technology pages/links. To know how computing evolved is important, before the new generation can change the way computing happens.
Doug Joness Index - Douglas W. Jones
Some subjects covered are Operating Systems, Computer Security and High Performance Computer Architecture.
Mechatronics and Robotics students will find Stepping Motors useful. Assemblers and linkers are good reference for the Embedded Systems Engineer.
