An Electronicstalk guide

Start with the news release Lattice upgrades IspLever Classic design tool from Lattice Semiconductor, which we summarised at the time by saying "Lattice Semiconductor has released version 1.4 of its IspLever Classic design tool suite to provide a design environment for Lattice complex programmable logic devices (CPLD).". Several months prior to that, we featured the news release Lattice Diamond suits low-power FPGA applications from Lattice Semiconductor: "Lattice Semiconductor has launched Version 1.0 of its Lattice Diamond field-programmable gate-array (FPGA) design software, enabling designers to target low-power, cost-sensitive FPGA applications.".

In January 2010, we covered the news from Saelig Company - take a look at USB 2.0 device features ADWG capabilities which says: "Saelig has announced the availability of GP-24100 - a PC-controlled USB 2.0 high-speed device featuring arbitrary digital waveform generator (ADWG) and logic analyser capabilities.".

Take a look also at the news release from Altera Europe, Altera offers industrial temperature CPLDs, as well as ProcessorPM and ISPMACH development kits launched from Lattice Semiconductor UK, and Aaeon launches PFM-C20N peripheral module from Aaeon.
