MAX® II CPLDs

The MAX® II CPLD family from Intel is an instant-on, non-volatile CPLD family based on a groundbreaking architecture that targets general-purpose, low-density logic and portable applications, such as cellular handset design. The MAX® II CPLD drives power improvements to higher densities, enabling you to use a MAX® II CPLD in place of a higher power ASSP and/or standard-logic CPLD. With the introduction of MAX® II Z CPLD, there are now three variants that all use the same innovation CPLD architecture.

MAX® II CPLD Applications

Common control path functions can be divided into four main categories: interface bridging, I/O expansion, system configuration, and power-up sequencing.

Application Description
Interface Bridging Translate bus protocols and voltages between incompatible devices.
I/O Expansion Perform I/O decoding, increasing the available I/O on an ASSP or microcontroller easily.
System Configuration and Initialization Control the configuration or initialization of volatile devices.
Power-Up Sequencing Manage the correct power-up sequencing for other devices on the board.
General-Purpose Logic MAX II features that serve general-purpose logic needs.
Portable Applications MAX® II Z CPLDs make portable applications possible in the most demanding environments.
