PLDs (Programmable Logic Device)

This Product Selection Guide contains information to help select products in the PLDs (Programmable Logic Device) category on DigiKey.com

Programmable Logic Devices (PLDs) are integrated circuits that contain a relatively small number of functional elements that provide user-configurable logic functions (AND, OR, etc.) as well as configurable interconnections between the elements within the device, allowing logic functions of modest complexity to be implemented using fewer components than would be required if individual logic devices were used, and also simplifying the process of making changes to the function being implemented. Devices of this type typically incorporate a non-volatile configuration memory, allowing the programmed functionality to be retained when power to the device is removed.


SelectionCharacteristics

DigiKey Programmable: For verified products, DigiKey can program/flash your compiled code or configuration variables prior to shipping. For unverified products, please inquire with ProgCent.Techs@digikey.com.

Programmable Type: Indicates how the device can programmed and if it can be programmed more than once.

Number of Macrocells: A measure of device size, complexity, or functional potential. (Not specified for all products)

Voltage - Input: Typically represented by a range, this indicates the low and high voltage limits which one can expect standard operation. Voltages outside this range may damage the device and other system components.

Speed: Indicate the clock frequency of the device. This directly influences the overall rate computations can be done in the device.

Mounting Type: Indicates how the device is attached.

Package / Case: Indicates the type of protective case used on an electronic component to allow easy handling, installation, and protection. This selection was determined to be the closest industry standard applicable to the supplier device packaging. Typically it is best to check the actual dimensions from the datasheet rather than depend on this terminology when designing your circuit.

Supplier Device Package: This is what the manufacturer calls the package of this device. They are manufacturer specific. It is typically best to use the actual dimensions from the datasheets rather than to go by this terminology when designing your circuit.
