Hi,

 i have chosen XC2C384-10PQ208I CPLD from CoolRunner II series in one of my new design but i came to know this is reaching its EOL so kindly suggest me equivalent part for this.

Do you have a link to the EOL notification?  I hadn't heard anything about CoolRunner II EOL, unless it's just related to the PQ208 package.

Coolrunner II is alive and healthy.

Although there has been no new devices or archirtectures in CPLDs for a number of years now, their sales are still quite steady (and profitable).

Id suggest you look at the Artex and an SPI prom if you can wait the few ms whilst the thing boots and the power difference.

I've found that to be a lot lower cost, MUCH more logic, and FPGA tools to design with ,

I did not find any product Discontinue Note (PDN) about XC2C384-10PQ208I device. I found revision change notice for cool runner CPLD’s in the following link http://www.xilinx.com/support/documentation/customer_notices/pcn2004-24.pdf . May I know where did you find expected life time  information?

 

I would recommend you here is to talk to your local FAE/DFAE   You can get contact details of them from the following link http://www.xilinx.com/company/sales/ww_disti.htm . (Also the following DFAE contact details link http://www.xilinx.com/company/contact/auth-disti-table.htm)

Id still use an Artex part if possible,

lower cost and much more capable, if you can suffer more power and slower to configure than a CPLD.

Re: Alternate part for XC2C384-10PQ208I

Sorry, to crash on this thread, but I ma in a similar position in that i am carrying out a technology update on a design I am responsible for (obsolesence removal basically).

Currently I have got a XC2C256-7VQ100I device fitted to my board, and this device appears to be in production and available, however I have been told by an independent person that this device is obsolete and replaced by a XA2C256-7VQ100I.

The only reference I can find to this is in XCN07016, where this change is suggested for Automotive applications only, am I missing something obvious, or is the independent person incorrect?

 

Ideally I would like to keep using the CoolrunnerII as this is a proven design with no noted issues, and low operational power is a key requirment in my design (Battery operated) along with minimal changes to be made to the design (apart from where technically required), but if required I will make the nescessary changes for a longer design lifespan.

 

Thanks

Chris

Re: Alternate part for XC2C384-10PQ208I

You might get more response if you start a new thread for your question.  However it seems that rumors of CR2's demise are premature.  The XA (automotive) series would be a direct drop-in replacement, so it would not affect board layout.  However you might need to re-fit for the XA series to create a compatible JEDEC file.  In any case, no one who already posted in this thread including the two from Xilinx seemed to be aware of any EOL for the general-purpose, non-automotive CoolRunner II series.

Thank you for your reply Gabor

You have given the same information as I believed to be the case.
