Go to www.xilinx.com for their step by step tuorials. You can also download their free HDL tools and simulator!

I think xilinx cpld is powerful and easy to study, for its development tool is very good.
I advise you to study the fundamental knowledge related firstly.

1) Choose Altera (e.g. MAX3000A devises) or Xilinx (CoolRunner II) CPLD
2) Buy CPLD dev. board
3) Read CPLD datasheet
4) Read Software Tutorial and make Tutorial Projects
5) Make own simple project (e.g. pulse counter)

the xilinx cpld is papular and text about these cpld are better than other.
the best book on this related is : FPGA published by xilinx.

Hi matelda,
do u have a xilinx ise tool?
if not, download the latest webpack ise for free.
the examples and help in the tool will guide u to develop designs using CPLD.
and then u can download the application notes for the CPLD's and impelement those in your development kit.

agree, the step tutorial from Xilinx is a good choice for the beginner

how to get the detail datasheet?
the datasheet in altera.com is not so in detail

CPLD is usually used for high speed processing and prove very useful in designs contain many interrupts run in parallel or in priority order.

microcontroller's are better in designs in which high speed processing is not essential and number of interrupts are limited, since handeling interrupt's in microcontrollers is tedious and many of them tend your design to be prone to unlimited problems.


this webpage has a simple jtag programmer construction you can make it yourself and a tutorial to start with cpld's:

can someone explain how cann I begin to learn the FPGA development with Altera's
chip.
how to do it setp by setp? I have some basic knolodege for microcontrollers.
Thanks. bye

i try altera n it is quite simple n easy to learn .... u can try maxplus2 which also include a guide on the website on how to start step by steps....

there is also lot books teaching the tutorial,,,easily learn....

the quartus2 web edition (replacement of maxplus2 now) is quite clumsy,,,,when start the prog it wait the internet connection...i prefer maxplus2..of course it has less functions....

then u can start ur FPGA development D.....

sp

I think u should understand clearly CPLD. that is difference with MP.
CPLD had designed to solve the digital circuit by parallel or serial (ex TTL IC).
but MC operate in the clock pulse base.

you should be able to design digital circuits skillfuly.
and then you should grasp digital system and the structure of the cpld. this is a basis.
