Hi Guys,
I´m looking for a VHDL compiler to use with GAL 22V10.
Any ideas ?
Thanks in advance.

Salam,

Why you don't use ABEL instead VHDL in programming this simple PLD ?
Search google you will find many result for ABEL.

I really don't understand why don't you use the tools from the 22V10 manufacturers like Cypress or Lattice.

At least you get free VHDL/Verilog tool from Lattice semiconductor and for a small price the Warp tool from Cypress!

I also think that it is waste one's talent on a petty job to design GAL using VHDL. you can design a system using CPLD, it is not so expensive and that is very easy.

For PLD design such as GAL, the best way would be to use schematic or abel for better structural control in your design.

Re: GALs & VHDL

PALASM ,CUPL, ABEL Pld assemblers are what you need for PLD, GALS or PALS ..
trying to use a rich language like VHDL ..with a very poor hardware resources will drive you crazy ..Unless what you need to do is ONLY COMBINATORIAL .. otherwise don't mess with VHDL .
