    Hello everyone, I have a minor problem. I have a circuit that uses a Xilinx CPLD xc95108-15-plcc84. I can't get any from my usual sources, with some not even having a page for it anymore. The only places I've seen it offered are from sellers in china who want $40-$50 for a used part that may or may not work.

    Can anyone suggest a suitable replacement that I will be able to use the .JED file with? It's fairly complex and I only have the compiled file and the Equation from the JED2EQN utility. Ideally i'd like it in a PLCC 84 so I can still use a through hole IC holder. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

    Many thanks, Mike

    You may be able to recreate the functionality from the equations you got using the jed2eqn utility, but directly using the *.jed is nearly certain to not work on any other CPLD (the only chance of that even working would be similar CPLDs from the same family).

    I'd suggest you recreate the logic at the high level (VHDL/Verilog) and recompile it for another target.
