Whether your targeted market is communications, consumer, computing, industrial, or military, MAX® V CPLDs are the right choice if you need flexibility in control path applications (Table 1). Complete your PCB design early and lock down the device pin-out but still feel comfortable the Quartus® Prime design software will routinely fit your design into the MAX V device, even if over 85% full.
New features offered by MAX V CPLDs (vs. previous generation MAX CPLDs) include:
- Logic element (LE) converted to RAM, digital phase-locked loop (PLL) IP, on-chip oscillator, 1.2-V LVCMOS, and LVDS output support
- Prices starting under $1
- Lower total system cost due to the architecture that integrates more external functions that were previously implemented in discrete logic ASSPs
- Lower total bill of materials (BOM) costs as the device requires as few as one power supply (Vcc-core)
- Extended battery life with static power as low as 45 µW
These new features allow you to integrate multiple control path applications onto a single device. With its mix of low price, low power, and high performance features, Altera’s MAX V CPLDs deliver the market’s best value.

|I/O expansion (PDF)||Perform I/O decoding, efficiently increasing the available I/O capability of another standard device at a low cost.|
|Interface bridging (PDF)||Translate bus protocols and voltages between incompatible devices at the lowest possible cost.|
|Power management control (PDF)||Manage the power-up sequencing and monitoring of other devices on the board.|
|Configuration and initialization control (PDF)||Control the configuration or initialization of other devices on the board.|
|Analog control (PDF)||Digital control of analog standard devices (light, sound, or motion) via pulse-width modulator (PWM) without needing a digital-to-analog converter (DAC).|
