|> The fact is that I haven't access to FPLA programming equipment :-/ | |Since a standard PAL/GAL like 22V10 or similar won't be enough in terms of |I/O you need to move towards CPLDs anyway - and these guys usually come |with in-circuit programmability these days which means that all you need |is a programming cable from your PC's parport to the 4 JTAG pins of the |CPLD. | |The programming software usually is free, some vendors even supply raw |material for people needing to embed these routines into own computer |designs. True. I think you can even use the Altera WebPack and use an EPM7032S. This device only costs a few $, in the slowest speed grade. For programming you can directly connect the parallel port pins to the jtag pins of the pld; you don't necessarily need a ByteBlaster for that. (Note: the 3032 would even be cheaper, but it's a 3.3V only device.) I found the PLA contents somewhere written out in logic formulas, but I guess I don't even have to mention this on this hackers group.. Gideon Message was sent through the cbm-hackers mailing list
