What is a Programmable Logic Device?

A PLD, or programmable logic device, is an electronic component that is used in order to build digital circuits that are reprogrammable. A programmable logic device does not have a defined function once manufactured, unlike a logic gate and has to be programmed before it can be used.

Types of Programmable Logic Devices

There are several different kinds of programmable logic devices at Future Electronics. We stock many of the most common types categorized by several parameters including Programmable Type, Number of I/O Lines, Supply Voltage, Memory Density, System Gates, Packaging Type and many other parameters specific to the type of programmable logic device. Our parametric filters will allow you to refine your search results according to the required specifications.
