Question Title PAL vs PLA - Gaded Discussion Board (GDB)

Question Description

CS302 – Digital Logic Design

Graded Discussion Board

Suppose you had reduced a 32-variable Boolean expression using Quine–McCluskey algorithm to a 12-variable expression. For the generated simplified expression, you are required to implement it into a digital logic circuit. You can only use Programmable Array Logic (PAL) or Programmable Logic Array (PLA) devices.

Assume that we had selected a Programmable Array Logic (PAL) and a Programmable Logic Array (PLA) for you to choose between.

Using TICPAL22V10Z-25C (Programmable Array Logic)

Using PLUS173–10 (Programmable Logic Array).

Your selections among stated PLA and PAL must consider the following constraints:

Complexity

Flexibility

Speed

Functionality

Cost

Important instructions for GDB submission:

You must provide a precise and to the point answer. Your answer should be no more than 5 to 6 lines and do avoid irrelevant details.

Post your answer on the Graded Discussion Board (GDB), GDB through email or MDB will not be accepted in any case.

GDB will only be open for 48 hours, no more time or grace day will be provided.

Any answers copied from the internet or other student will get zero marks.
