Hi all,
This is not a new question but my experience about CPLD/FPGA is almost zero. All concepts and comments that you discuss here are very new for me. So can someone show me some ways to get closer? How can I start researching about CPLD/FPGA?
Thanks a lot.

Hello,


Go through good books on VHDL/Verilog programming first...then
study the FPGA Architecture details...




Here the couple of freely available tools to learn the same...

Buy the "High Volume Starter Kit Bundle" from Xilinx for only $99 US. It includes an FPGA board, a CPLD board, cables, manuals, and a CD full of development tools. Try some of the example projects.
