CPLD or FPGA?

Hello,

 

We have a design that we would like to fit in a CPLD or FPGA, we have extremely limited experience with both technologies, and need help to determine which technology and which part in the particular technology would be suitable.  I have attached block diagrams to accompany the following description, the block diagram show two possible ways of implementing what we need.

 

What we need to implement in the CPLD or FPGA is:

 

16 counters of 18 bits each that can count at a rate of 1 MHz.

Logic to provide a serial bus to read the 16 counters.

The ability to read the previous counter results while new counting is occurring, (i.e. latches).

We need a very small package (footprint)

And as low power as is possible.

The attached pdf will give more insight to the requirement.

 

Your assistance is appreciated.
