Parts List Details
           You may or may not be familiar with the parts above so a picture of each item has been included to clear up any possible questions.

MAX 7128SLC84-10 & PLCC Socket
This will be the brains of the development board. It will make all the decisions and will be what we program. The PLCC socket is necessary to wirewrap everything together. SIPS will be placed onto the PLCC so that it fits nicely into our prototype board.

100Ω Resistors & 7 Semgent LED Display
           The 100Ω resistors are just current limiting resistors so the LEDs in the display don't get burned out. The 7 segment LED display itsself is just 7 leds that we light up to create a number or character. These are typically used to display values in hexidecimal.

10-Pin Port (Shrouded Header) & ByteBlaster MV
           The ByteBlaster MV cable will be used to program the CPLD. It is crucial that you pay extra special attention when wiring the 10-Pin port to the CPLD. If you wire it incorrectly you run the risk of burning out your ByteBlaster MV cable. Buying/Building a new one will cost you money, so be careful!

Wirewrap, SIPS, & the rest
           We'll use wirewrap throughout the tutorial to connect the pins on the development board. Everything will be put into SIPS to make connecting pins using wirewrap easier. The SIP socket is used for the resistor array.
