Programmable logic devices have configurable logic and flip-flops linked together by programmable interconnects. Memory cells control and define the functions that the logic performs, and how the various logic functions are interconnected. 
Programmable Logic Devices Categories

Application Specific Integrated Circuits (ASIC) (173 suppliers)

Application specific integrated circuits (ASIC) are electronic chips designed for a particular application.

Complex Programmable Logic Devices (CPLD) (51 suppliers)

Complex programmable logic devices (CPLDs) are integrated circuits (ICs) or chips that application designers configure to implement digital hardware such as mobile phones. CPLDs can handle significantly larger designs than simple programmable logic devices (SPLDs), but provide less logic than field programmable gate arrays (FPGAs).

Field-Programmable Gate Arrays (FPGA) (115 suppliers)

Field-programmable gate arrays (FPGAs) have a different architecture than SPLDs and CPLDs, and typically offer higher capacities. FPGAs are also known as logic cell arrays (LCA) and programmable ASIC (pASIC).

Programmable Logic Devices (PLD) (198 suppliers)

Programmable logic devices (PLD) are designed with configurable logic and flip-flops linked together with programmable interconnect. PLDs provide specific functions, including device-to-device interfacing, data communication, signal processing, data display, timing and control operations, and almost every other function a system must perform.

Serdes (16 suppliers)

Serializer/de-serializer (SERDES) macro-cell circuits receive fast serial signals (on the order of Mbits/s or higher) and de-serialize them into slower parallel signals. Some SERDES circuits can be programmed like any other PLD.

Simple Programmable Logic Devices (SPLD) (41 suppliers)

Programmable logic devices (PLD) are digital devices with configurable logic and flip-flops linked together with programmable interconnect.

System on a Chip (SoC) (105 suppliers)

System on a chip (SoC) devices are semiconductor chips with embedded components that make the chip a standalone system.
