CPLD 7200: Are there 7200 devices left? Are there any compatible devices?
Keywords: 7200, availabile, pin compatible
General Description: Are there any 7200 devices available? What about pin compatibility to a newer device?
The 7200 series was one of the first CPLDs designed by Xilinx. There are not any more 7200 devices available. Additionally, there are no direct pin-for-pin replacement parts available.
The 9500 device family is as close as Xilinx has available. However, the 7200 was an EE based process, while the 9500 is a flash based process. Additionally, even devices in the same package are not pin compatible, and will require some re-layout of the board.
