What are CPLDs?
A complex programmable logic device (CPLD) is a programmable logic device with complexity between that of PALs and FPGAs, and architectural features of both. It is made up of several simple PLDs (SPLDs) with a programmable switching matrix in between the logic blocks. CPLDs typically use EEPROM, flash memory or SRAM to hold the logic design interconnections.

2008-05-16 Cut down processor power consumption with CPLD
According to Mark Ng of Xilinx Inc., Reducing power consumption not only involves correct management of the operating mode of a device, but designing a system to take advantage of the modes a device can operate within. Offloading operations of the microprocessor allows it to stay in its low-power state for a longer amount of time. One way to reduce system power is to allow a low-power programmable logic device, such as a CPLD, to manage these offloaded operations.
