Programmable ICs

Programmable Logic ICs (Integrated Circuits) are programmed by end users to create complex custom logic circuit configurations. Their programmability gives designers the flexibility to quickly adapt designs to the needs and requirements of their projects and customers, and provides cost savings by eliminating the cost for extra components.

Programmable Logic ICs can be configured by changing the connections between input and output pins. Custom programming allows the device to control, process and analyze data in real-time to produce complex logic functions.

The most common types of Programmable Logic ICs are Simple Programmable Logic Devices (SPLDs), Complex Programmable Logic Devices (CPLDs) and Field Programmable Gate Arrays (FPGAs). SPLDs are typically reserved for the simplest tasks like replacing discrete logic components. CPLDs use "look-up tables" to program internal functions, unlike SPLDs that rely on fixed, wired connections between input and output pins to operate. FPGAs offer even better flexibility than SPLDs and CPLDs because they have dedicated logic blocks programmed in VHDL or Verilog.
