What are PLDs?
PLDs or programmable logic devices refer to a variety of logic chips that are programmable at the user's site. Programmability of logic means that new chip designs can be tested and easily changed without incurring the huge photomask costs for chips completed in a fab. In addition, memory-based PLDs can be reprogrammed over and over, which allows working products to be upgraded at the user's site.

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.
