Early embedded designs surrounded microcontrollers with copious amounts and various types of glue logic. MSI (medium-scale integration) multiplexers, counters, registers, and decoders, and SST (small-scale integration) flip-flops and asynchronous combinatorial gates made up for microcontroller's limited I/O and built-in functions beyond those of the core ALU (arithmetic-logic unit).
Moreover, its flexible set of networking interfaces reduces system costs by eliminating glue logic and will enable OEMs to leverage millions of lines of code that are successfully running on PowerQUICC devices."
The CPU, the user interface controllers (i.e., LCD, touch panel), ASSP controllers for DSP functions and battery management, the glue logic, and the communications interfaces can all be implemented using library cores available from the FPGA vendor.
