Altera EP320 to PAL16V8

Started by Matthieu Benoit April 28, 2004
Anybody knows if it can be simply done to convert
a jedec file read out from an ALtera EP320 and to 
program into a PALCE16V8 .
note it is for repair purposes so I haven't the design
software of the ALtera.
Regards,
MB

Yes, some companies did/do JEDEC converters. This from the WinPLACE manual, so it looks like you can go EP320 -> 18CV8 -jg http://www.ictpld.com/WinPLACE/index.htm

visit the Lattice website - www.latticesemi.com - and download paltogal software. This utility converts almost all SPLD jedec to the equivalent GAL/PAL device, and is FREE - good luck with your design - Michael Thomas LSC FAE NY/NJ
