Build A CPLD Dev Board: Conclusion

An Overview Of The CPLD Development Board
           Building this small board brings you into a new world different from what traditional computing has had to offer. You are now have the capability to design your own electrical circuit in a 'newbie friendly' enviornment (schematic design editor) and a method for programming it onto the CPLD device.

What To Do Now
           The best thing to do is to play around with it. See what you can make it do. This is how you learn and get better at the process. After you are comfortable with what's going on, making the leap to VHDL or Verilog is smart (perhaps essential). Tutorials on these two langauges should be up shortly.

           This tutorial was not terribly complex. It might be difficult acquiring a MAX 7000A series device but they should be too expensive from altera. Either way the parts are inexpensive and the building of the development board only mildly difficult. The results that come from buidling it are a platform that can be used for any CPLD need, with much room to spare for additional parts & peripheral devices.
           If you have any further questions, I implore you...don't be shy, take a look at the forums or ask a question there. I check them out regularly and love getting comments & questions.
