Our portfolio of Electronic Programmable Logic Devices (EPLDs) includes two major product categories: Simple Programmable Logic Devices (SPLDs) and higher-density Complex Programmable Logic Devices (CPLDs).  Microchip is the sole manufacturer of SPLD products that replaced PLA- and PAL-type devices in the mid-1990s. These products consist of industry-standard 16V8 and 22V10 families of devices that are available in a variety of voltage and power-saving options. Our CPLDs can be used for I/O expansion as well as for memory, control and interfacing with different types of memories such as compact Flash or mobile SDRAM.
