Hallo Didier,

Indeed, for both.

No, they are certainly not pincompatible.

This GAL has 20 usuable pins, partly only input, partly I/O. The MAX
more then 32, mostly I/O (IIRC).

The GAL with its DIP can be removed easier out of its socket whem to be
(re)programmed then the MAX. OTOH the S-version should have JTAG and is
in circuit programmable.

Please explain, this doen't make sense. Unless you need more glue logic
than your CPLD can provide.

For about $40 you can buy the TOP853:

Just picked the first hit on Google. Mine came with a PLCC44-to-DIP40

Cheaper than a GAL, more flexible than LS. But then what about a bigger

IMHO this depends on the availability of the parts and the price.
