EEPLD

(Electrically Erasable PLD) A programmable logic device (PLD) that uses EEPROM to store its logic design interconnections. EEPROM-based electrically erasable PLDs and EPROM-based "erasable" PLDs are often used in the testing stages of a new chip design. When the design has been thoroughly tested, less expensive one-time programmable PLDs may be used for the final product. See PLD.

With only slight modification, most AHDL designs that have been implemented in other EPLD architectures, such as the EPM7032, can be migrated to the programmable logic on the ZPSD6XXV.
Many AHDL designs that have been implemented in another type of EPLD may be copied into PSDsoft and migrated to the programmable logic on the ZPSD6XX with minimal modification.
