Control-path and board-management functions are increasing in complexity, and traditional CPLD architectures cannot cost-effectively support the increased functionality required. Leveraging Altera’s new low-cost MAX II CPLD family with its instant-on, non-volatile product attributes and unique features can help designers introduce, new, smaller and more powerful systems at a lower cost. These benefits can be achieved using the same easy-to-use tools as previous CPLD generations, reducing time to market and accelerating the learning curve.
