    I want to know if the X2c family (coolrunner II) have a non-volatile
    program memory inside its package: I would like a non-volatile memory
    (eeprom...) that contains the "programs" also
    when it's extinguished (and with a number of macrocells comparable with
    a small/medium fpga).
    However I would know the name of a low-power, non-volatile program
    memory family (CPLD).
    Another question: can I use the XC9500 programmer (seen
    here: http://www.xilinx.com/support/programr/files/0380507.pdf) to
    program the X2c family (or where I can find some programers for the
    CPLD package)?

    Thanks
    Duccio

    Yes, the Coolrunners store the configuration in
    nonvolatile FLASH memory.

    The JTAG cable in your link works for programming,
    but you may have to go back a few Webpack versions.
    Xilinx has dropped support for the simplest cables
    from the software. Not sure about this particular one.

    Kind regards,
