CoolRunner CPLD evaluation kit

24 April 2002 Design Automation

Avnet Design Services (ADS), the technical arm of Avnet Electronics Marketing, and programmable logic provider Xilinx, have announced a new evaluation kit for Xilinx Coolrunner-II RealDigital CPLDs.

The CoolRunner-II evaluation kit is a platform that demonstrates the high-speed and ultra-low power capabilities of this new family of devices. The kit can be used to evaluate various design approaches, measure actual CPLD operating power consumption, and investigate the new features of the family, including various I/O standards, design security and clocking schemes.

According to Xilinx, the combination of ultra-low power and high-performance in a programmable logic device will address a variety of new communications and consumer applications. Designers will no longer need to make trade-offs that sacrifice features for battery lifetime or speed for low-power.

"The Xilinx CoolRunner-II CPLD is the first no-compromise solution," said Warren Miller, vice president of marketing for Avnet Design Services. "Evaluation kits are the quickest and easiest way for designers to learn about new products and technologies."

The CoolRunner-II evaluation kit contains a printed circuit board containing the CoolRunner-II XC2C64-VQ100, complete design documentation, demonstration programs, and a board support package to simplify application development.
