Altera’s MAX(R) series of CPLDs are world-class, low cost solutions for a wide variety of digital applications. Instant-on MAX CPLDs represent the ultimate in flexibility, as they can be independent programmable solutions or complement other semiconductors in a system. MAX CPLDs are non-volatile, single-chip solutions that do not require additional configuration devices. This means that they can be preprogrammed and reprogrammed using in-system programmability (ISP) and will retain the programming algorithm securely, even when the device is powered off.
- MAX II
MAX II devices are based on a groundbreaking new CPLD architecture that delivers the lowest cost per I/O pin and the lowest power of any CPLD family. Featuring a low-power process technology, MAX II devices deliver half the cost, one-tenth the power, four times the density, and twice the performance of previous MAX devices.
- MAX 3000A
Altera’s 3.3-V MAX(R) 3000A devices are based on the Altera(R) MAX architecture and are cost-optimized for high-volume applications. Manufactured on an advanced 0.30-µm CMOS process, the electrically erasable programmable read-only memory (EEPROM)-based MAX 3000A family provides instant-on capability and offers densities from 32 to 512 macrocells. MAX 3000A devices support in-system programmability (ISP) and can be easily reconfigured in the field. Each MAX 3000A macrocell is individually configurable for either sequential or combinatorial logic operation.
- MAX 7000
Altera’s MAX(R) 7000 CPLDs are based on the advanced Multiple Array Matrix (MAX) architecture and offer world-class, high-performance solutions for a broad array of applications. Manufactured on an advanced CMOS process, the electrically-erasable programmable read-only memory (EEPROM)-based MAX 7000 products provide instant-on capability, and offer densities from 32 to 512 macrocells with pin-to-pin delays as fast as 3.5 ns. MAX 7000 devices support in-system programmability (ISP) and can be easily reconfigured in the field.
