Xilinx Inc. announces the immediate availability of its low-cost CoolRunner-II CPLD starter kit suitable for prototyping high volume, ultralow power applications such as handheld devices, smartphones, motor control interface, and embedded CPLD applications.

The Xilinx CoolRunner-II CPLDs offer the lowest power consumption, highest I/O count per macrocell, and smallest packaging in the industry and are cost optimized to address the pricing pressure of products designed for a broad spectrum of applications. Available in densities of 32-512 macrocells, the CoolRunner-II family achieves performance of up to 323MHz and pin-to-pin delays as fast as 3ns while providing a standby power of less than 33mW.

The kit enables users to quickly develop and test applications while reducing design time and risk by leveraging its modular board architecture approach with multiple boards designed to work together. The kit includes an evaluation board with eight expansion connectors; three modules including PS2, seven-segment display and slide switch, ISE WebPack design software and a vast array of reference designs to shrink development time. An optional peripheral module bundle consisting of A/D, D/A, motor control, stereo amplifier, serial port and other modules expand the functionality.

The Xilinx CoolRunner-II CPLD Starter Kit is immediately available from Xilinx distributors for $49.95. The optional CoolRunner-II CPLD Peripheral Module Bundle (includes eight different expansion module cards) is available for $99.00.
