What is PAL?


Programmable Array Logic (PAL) is a type of semiconductor used to implement logic functions in digital circuits.

PAL is a type of programmable logic device, which is a term for an integrated circuit that can be programmed in a laboratory to perform complex functions.

The device consists of a programmable read-only memory core with an output logic which is used ot implement logic functions with few components.

PAL devices are field-programmable, which means that it can be configured after manufacturer by a users. There were several versions, some allowing it to be reprogrammed only once and some which could be erased for re-use.
