KCPSM stands for Ken Chapmans Programmable State Machine
and the number is version number.

Re: PicoBLaze kcpsm3

KCPSM stands for Constant(k) Coded Programmable State Machine'. The fact that 'KC' should correspond with my initials is a total coincidence :-)
 
PicoBlaze is the umbrella name for all the series including PSM, KCPSM, KCPSM-II, PicoBlaze for CPLD and KCPSM3.

Re: PicoBLaze kcpsm3

And what is a Nanoblaze? - is it something between between a picoblaze and a microblaze?

Re: PicoBLaze kcpsm3

LCDs need an initialisation sequence before being able to use them. The picoblaze does this very well and is very good in general for driving an LCD. It would be possible to do that in pure logic - but that would be perverse. Once you have a picoblaze in the design, you can use it for lots of other stuff aswell....
