Equations which specify the special arithmetic capabilities of theXilinx CPLDs.
Arithmetic Logic Unit (ALU)
A logic function that performs arithmetic computations, such asaddition, multiplication, and comparison operations. The ALU is onecomponent of the central processing unit (CPU).
An application-specific integrated circuit (ASIC) is either a full-custom circuit in which every mask is defined by the user or a semi-custom circuit (gate array) where only a few masks are defined.
A debugging mode in which you capture data without controllingyour system clock.
Logic which changes state independently of clock changes.A signal whose intended function is performed immediately when thesignal is asserted without regard to a clock.
A register whose state changes independently from the clock.
Asynchronous Transfer Mode (ATM)
A method of transmitting voice, data, and video in fixed-size packetsover high-speed telecommunications channels.
Instructions placed on symbols or nets in an FPGA or CPLD schematicto indicate their placement, implementation, naming, directionality, orother properties.
Translation of a routed or fitted design to a timing simulation netlist.
A measure of a circuit’s ability to carry or process information. Moreor greater bandwidth means more carrying capacity or greaterprocessing power, usually achieved at greater cost.
