What is the CPLD? What does it do?

This question is not answered

I want to know what function the CPLD fulfills on my m610. Is this somehow a part of driver updating?

Thanks,
Rob

(Complex PLD) A programmable logic device that is made up of several simple PLDs (SPLDs) with a programmable switching matrix in between the logic blocks. CPLDs typically use EEPROM, flash memory or SRAM to hold the logic design interconnections. See PLD and SPLD.
