Programmable logic devices are semiconductor logic blocks which have applications for developing reconfigurable circuits. Programmable logic devices has the capability to be reprogrammed multiple times, which in turn benefits the end-users at the time of producing new advanced circuitry on a trial and error basis. Reprogramming is possible for the programmable logic devices as a result of these devices being primarily dependent on re-writeable memory technology through which a better flexibility is provided by changing the design along with making this process of reprogramming easier. Programmable logic devices market has been segmented into by type which includes programmable array logic (PAL), mixed signal programmable logic devices or complex programmable logic devices (CPLDs) and Field-Programmable Gate Arrays (FPGAs). The market is also segmented on the basis of end use industry which includes consumer electronics, avionics, aerospace and defense, information technology, automotive and telecommunication among others. The market has been segmented geographically into Europe, Asia Pacific, North America, South America and Middle East and Africa.
