General Description:
Why does the XPLA1 ISP Demo Board CPLD function improperly?


The on-board clock circuit on the ISP demo board produces a clock
with rise and fall times that are slower than those specified in the data sheet.
This can cause improper clocking within the part, causing unpredictable

The slow rise/fall time is due to a termination resistor on the board, R2,
which provides termination if an external clock is used for the board.
This resistor should be removed from the board if the on-board clock
circuit is being used.
