  • Programmable Logic Device

What does PLD mean?

PLD is a semiconductor device that can be programmed to obtain required logic devices. The advantages of PLD is re-programmability, they have replaced special purpose logic devices like logic gates, flip flop, counter, and multiplexer in many semi-custom applications. It reduces the design time and thus reduces the time for the product to reach the market. It consists of an array of AND and OR gates, which can be programmed to realize the required logic function.
