I have seen Xylinx parts not work at speed, as in internal noise, ultimately Xylinx admitted that there were problems. This was some of their big expensive parts that ultimately couldnt be "loaded up and ran" as this wasnt not a subtle problem where you track down a glitch, whole sections propagated invalid states. -----Original Message----- From: firstname.lastname@example.org [mailto:email@example.com] On Behalf Of Michal Pleban Sent: Friday, June 08, 2012 5:08 AM To: firstname.lastname@example.org Subject: Re: CPLD/FPGA course Bil Herd wrote: > I switched from Xylinx to Altera years ago and so tend to recommend > their stuff.

Also Altera chips tend to be a bit cheaper than Xilinx. Regards, Michau.
