Programmable Logic Array (PLA)

The PLA is a non volatile Random Access Storage


device.
Used for implementing random logic circuitry and
ROMs.
PLA is similar to ROM. In this memory, the stored
data can only be read out, but their principle of
operation and internal structure are very different.

Operation of PLA
The Block diagram of a typical PLA with M inputs and N
outputs is shown in Fig.1
The CE is chip Enable Input and use to Enable the 3state outputs.

When PLA is used to implement logic functions, the


inputs represent Boolean variables and the outputs

corresponding to different functions of these


variables.
PLA can also be used for lesser number of
functions, leaving a portion of PLA unused.

Input Buffer: Provides the input variables and their


complements on its outputs.

AND Matrix: Used to form Product terms.

OR Matrix : Used to produce the logic sum of the


product term output of the AND Matrix.
CM305.75

Invert / Non-Invert Matrix : Programmable buffer that


can be set for inverting or Non-inverting operation
corresponding to active low or active high output
respectively.
Output Buffer : Used to increase the driving capability
of the PLA.

Usually, the outputs are TTL Compatible.

74PL839,82S200,DM7575,DM7576 are important


commercially available PLA ICs.
