EPM3064 Obsolete MAX3000

Can anyone recommend an equivalent to the EPM3064 CPLD. I have a design going into production with this device. The software is complete and functional. I have time with last time buys but management will not be happy with this discontinuance. Any recommendations is appreciated.

Hi MJ, 

device family MAX7000A can be considered as an equivalent for MAX3000A family in general. I have seen an obsolescence information about certain MAX7000A devices but EPM7064AE seems to be still active. But I assume the rest of old CPLD devices such as MAX7000A will be obsolete in near future. There are newer device family as MAX II, V, 10 recommend for new designs. 

 

Regards, 

Martin

Look at ATF1504ASV from Microchip/Atmel: http://www.microchip.com/wwwproducts/en/atf1504asv (http://www.microchip.com/wwwproducts/en/atf1504asv

There are pin-to-pin compatible devices: http://www.atmel.com/images/doc0916.pdf (http://www.atmel.com/images/doc0916.pdf

Atmel has free utilities:  

1) pof to jedec file conversion (jed-file need for ATF1504ASV programming): http://www.microchip.com/design-centers/programmable-logic/spld-cpld/tools/software/pof2jed (http://www.microchip.com/design-centers/programmable-logic/spld-cpld/tools/software/pof2jed)  

2)programmer software: http://www.microchip.com/design-centers/programmable-logic/spld-cpld/tools/software/atmisp (http://www.microchip.com/design-centers/programmable-logic/spld-cpld/tools/software/atmisp

 

Programmer hardware for ATF1504ASV is simple (based on FTDI FT2232H device). 

 

Best regards,
