Abstract

This system features a (1) microprocessor-based programming panel for field programmable logic arrays (P-PLAs), (2) automatic checking and copying of programmable logic array (PLA) personalization via a microprocessor, and (3) use of direct memory access (DMA) to transfer data to a PLA which permits fast, efficient, and accurate personalization of F-PLAs.
