Altera MAX3000 series

Is there a pin to pin replacement of the end of life Altera MAX3000 series, EPM3128ATC100-10N to be more precise?

Hi Rolf, Good day. Yes, EPM3128ATC100-10N was obsolete. You may refer to the PDN1709 for more information. https://www.intel.com/content/dam/www/programmable/us/en/pdfs/literature/pcn/pdn1709.pdf There is no direct drop in replacement for the obsolete Max 3000A device. You are recommended to use the newest CPLD devices for your design. https://www.intel.com/content/www/us/en/products/programmable/max-series.html Thank you

​So there is MAX 2, 5, and 10. Which one would be easiest to replace the MAX3000 with? This is a medical application so no more obsolete stuff in 15-20 years from now….

Check out the Microchip/Atmel ATF15xx series. They offer a conversion utility from Altera POF to JED files to program their devices.

See: https://www.microchip.com/design-centers/programmable-logic/spld-cpld/tools/software/pof2jed and associated App notes.

 

According to Microchip the ATF1508ASV-A100 (current production device) replaces the EPM3128ATC100 and is supported by POF2JED
