MAX + plus II: FPGA Integrated Digital Device Development Environment

The general tendency for the development of the element base of digital circuitry, starting with the appearance of the first integrated circuits in the early 60s to the present, is a continuous increase in the number of logic elements (LEs) placed on the chip, while reducing the unit cost of one element. An increase in the number of LEs continuously opens up the possibility of creating increasingly complex digital devices placed on a single chip. The main (far from complete) positive results of this trend include: Continue reading
