Introduction to FPGA Part 1: What is an FPGA?
A field-programmable gate array (FPGA) is an integrated circuit (IC) that lets you implement custom digital circuits. You can use an FPGA to create optimised digital logic for things like digital signal processing (DSP), machine learning, and cryptocurrency mining.
FPGA design: Exploring pros, cons and uses
FPGA design is being used more frequently in sectors from radio communications to space tech. Written from the knowledge of Jason Jibrail, Senior Software Engineer, from Ignys design consultancy, we explore the current status of FPGA design usage, and key points for project consideration when choosing whether to include an FPGA in your design.
