PLD GLOSSARY

ABEL™ABEL is a Hardware Description Language (HDL). It features boolean equations, truth tables and state diagrams. An ABEL-HDL design file is the source for the compiler. ACW (Architecture Control Word)Output configurations are controlled by a set of fuses, i.e. programmable ACW cells. The composition of the fuses within the ACW is device specific.
