    CPLD Max II, programming.


      Hello, I write in hopes that I can solve a problem encountered in CPLD integrated circuits. I use a board purchased from the internet, equipped with CPLD Max II - EPM1270T144C5, programmed through the Quartus II Lite software. This CPLD has been configured in a simple two-port Nand latch SR, where pull-up resistors have been enabled at the inputs. By programming the board successfully and verifying that the logic was correct, I noticed an anomaly. Precisely, if I connect the board to a power supply (AC / DC converter), where there is no network filter, I just touch one of the pins of the CPLD to drive the SR latch crazy, sometimes it is enough to bring a finger to a distance of 2/3 mm from the package. The problem is substantially reduced by connecting a battery, reducing to 95% if the power is supplied by a USB port of a PC, with a mains filter. I state that during the programming phase I have set all the unused pins in all the allowed possibilities, GND, tri-state pull-up, etc. In the hope you can give me an opinion. Thank you.
