 PALASM

I have been assigned to review and update a product that uses an AMD 22V10
PAL and 16V8 PAL.  The .JED files for the PALs were generated using PALASM.
Is this compiler still available?  No response from my question posted to
the AMD web site.  When the design is updated, I doubt that these PALs would
be used; however, I'd like to be able start out by recreating all of the
original code.

Paul;

Look at the Lattice/Vantis web site http://www.latticesemi.com.
If you can get access to their download area (believe that you
may need to sign up for it), you can find Palasm4 version 1.5 for
free. There is no support for it, since it was put in the public
domain a number of years ago.

This software will work under NT 4.0, not sure about Win95 or Win98.
It was written for DOS5/Windows 3.x environment.

I have quite a bit of experience in this area, as a couple of years back I
taught a class of ~200 students who were using PALASM.  I personally
had no major trouble with the software under Win95, on two different
machines (both Dell -- one laptop one desktop).  However, I did receive
some reports from students who couldn't get it working properly.  We
could never identify a common cause -- it seems to be highly hardware
and/or installation dependent.

Try your luck -- I think you've got an extremely good chance if your
hardware is of good quality, and even better if you've got access to
an additional machine from a different manufacturer.  It should run OK
in a DOS box under windows -- I couldn't get a DOS-based editor
to work with it as advertised, but that's OK because you can just
use a Windows-based editor with a nicer interface instead.

Paul,

Another approach is to rewrite the PALASM in VHDL and use the Cypress Warp Tool.

It does a pretty good job.   I won't go back to PALASM ever again.

E-mail me a design and I'll gladly show you one example each of a combinatorial
output and a clocked flip-flop, and I think you will get the hang of it pretty
quickly.

No, I don't work for Cypress.

Thanks for all of your replies; I downloaded PALASM from the Lattice site
and am up and running.  News groups sure come in handy, nice to know people
are willing to share their info and help each other out.  Season Greetings!

Paul,

Another approach is to try Xilinx Webpack (VHDL synthesis, free from Xilinx web
site), you should target a edif file and then port this file into XPLD (P&R
also available from Xilinx). You can then target a Philips/Xilinx 22V10. I am
not sure but I belief that some 22V10 can use the same Jedec file. You can also
use PHDL which is a PALASM style language. However, as this is the VHDL
newsgroup I would strongly suggest to use VHDL which is much more fun....

Good luck,
Hans.
