Product Description

Support for the CoolRunner-II is limited since it is ISE only. 

A complete toolbox to help designers develop the latest CPLD designs! 

The CoolRunner-II CPLD starter board is the perfect platform for the evaluation and implementation of designs using a high performance, low-power CPLD. Targeted applications include intelligent handheld devices, remote monitoring, wireless interfacing, and glue logic across any number of industries. 

The DataGATE switch allows designers to easily evaluate a unique power option that permits input signal blocking, stops input switching, and significantly reduces power consumption, extending battery life. With four 12-pin Pmod ports, you can easily add functions such as analog-to-digital conversion, servo motor interface, serial flash, RS232 serial channel, accelerometers, temperature sensors, and more. Check out our Pmod category for a complete list of modules.
