Benefits

Best CPLD Value

When you use MAX V devices, you'll enjoy lower total system cost because the MAX V architecture integrates previously external functions, such as flash, RAM, oscillators, and phase-locked loops. MAX V CPLDs deliver a large number of I/Os and logic per footprint. The devices also use low-cost and green packaging technology, with packages as small as 20 mm.

Lower Total Power

With MAX V CPLDs, you'll get robust new features at up to 50 percent lower total power vs. other equivalent-density CPLDs on the market.

  • Extended battery life with static power as low as 45 uW.
  • As few as one power supply (Vcc-core) required, which also lowers bill of materials (BOM) costs.

Built on a mature and low-cost wafer fab process, MAX V CPLDs leverage a proven architecture while delivering robust features including:

  • In-system programming (ISP), which lets you program the device while it is in operation, so you can perform in-field updates without affecting overall system operation.
  • User flash memory, embedded flash memory that provides non-volatile memory storage of critical system information.
  • Digital PLLs (DPLLs), which enable flexible implementation of designs requiring frequency multiplication or phase shifting.

Easy-to-use, Free Design Software

MAX V CPLDs are supported with free Quartus® Prime Lite Edition software. With Quartus Prime software, you'll get productivity enhancements resulting in faster simulation, faster board bring-up, and faster timing closure. This software also comes with a system-level integration tool called Qsys, delivering higher circuit performance while also enabling you to design at a higher level of abstraction.

Features

MAX® V devices are ideal for general-purpose and power- and space-constrained designs in many market segments.
