Cost-optimized for high-volume applications
Based on the Altera's MAX® architecture, Altera's 3.3-V MAX 3000A CPLDs are cost-optimized for high-volume applications. Manufactured on an advanced 0.30-µm CMOS process, the EEPROM-based MAX 3000A CPLD family provides instant-on capability and offers densities from 32 to 512 macrocells. MAX 3000A CPLDs 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.
Altera's MAX 3000A programmable logic devices are the ideal non-volatile, instant-on CPLDs for high-volume, cost-sensitive applications. MAX 3000A CPLDs offer a range from 32 to 512 macrocells, a 3.3-V logic core, and support commonly used features and packages.
MAX 3000A CPLDs are available in both commercial and industrial grades and are offered in popular packages such as thin quad flat pack (TQFP) and 1.0-mm pitch ball-grid array (BGA), in addition to traditional plastic J-lead chip carrier (PLCC) and plastic quad flat pack (PQFP) packages. MAX 3000A CPLDs give you the needed flexibility to use different board layouts for your designs.
Altera's MultiVolt interface allows you to integrate MAX 3000A designs at 2.5-, 3.3-, and 5.0-V logic levels seamlessly. From industrial applications that traditionally call for 5.0-V I/O signals to consumer applications that require low-voltage standards such as 2.5 V, MAX 3000A CPLDs offer robust I/O voltage options. Table 1 shows the MAX 3000A CPLD input and output voltage support.

|2.5 V||3.3 V||5.0 V||2.5 V||3.3 V|
- 3.3-V outputs are compatible with 2.5- and 5.0-V systems
MAX 3000A CPLDs are instant-on and non-volatile, and offer global clocking, in-system programmability, IEEE-1532 standard compliance, and open-drain output. Combined with many other silicon features, MAX 3000A CPLDs address a broad range of system design requirements.
Easy-to-use design software
MAX CPLDs are supported by the easy-to-use Quartus® II Web Edition development software (no license required) and MAX+PLUS® II BASELINE design software Both platforms provide synthesis, place-and-route, design verification, and device programming, and can be downloaded at no cost from the Altera® website. The complimentary development tools available for designing with MAX CPLDs help minimize the total development cost of end-user systems.
Multitude of applications
MAX 3000A CPLDs can be found in communication, computer, consumer, automotive, industrial, and many other end applications. Due to their low cost and flexibility, MAX 3000A CPLDs reduce system cost by replacing other, more expensive standard silicon devices. With CPLDs, system upgrades are easy and extend the shelf life of end products that leverage the reprogrammability of MAX 3000A CPLDs.
