Pixart Imaging Inc. has selected Altera Corp.s MAX 3000A CPLD to replace a multi-chip solution for a cellular phone digital still camera add-on. Replacing multiple chips with a single Altera programmable logic device (PLD) enabled PixArt to lower production costs, reduce board space, and increase system reliability all critical considerations for portable consumer appliances.

Altera's 3.3-V MAX 3000A devices are based on the Altera MAX architecture and are cost-optimized for high-volume applications. Manufactured on an advanced 0.30?m 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.
