This cape adds the power of a CPLD to the BeagleBone.
Mounted on the cape is a Xilinx CoolRunner-II CPLD with 256 macro cells.  (XC2C256-7VQG100C). With this cape you can generate and process digital signals in real time. All signals can be accessed from the P8 and P9 headers on the BeagleBone. If the signal is not already routed to the CPLD. Use a jump wire to route the signal(s) to and from any header on the cape.
