What is a FPGA and what does it do?

11/03/2019, hardwarebee

Let’s take a few steps back… in the beginning, there was the transistor. This was a form of electronic amplifier or switch that, unlike the prevailing vacuum tubes of the early days, could be made small. In the late 1950s, a bunch of companies, including Texas Instruments under the leadership

What is an FPGA? How does it work?

05/03/2019, hardwarebee

This is a guest post by Jose Soares Augusto, Instructor of courses on circuits and electronics for almost 30 years.
 
I usually introduce the FPGA (Field-Programmable Gate Array) by saying it is like a Lego box, filled with many instances of several types of blocks. Instead of Lego blocks, the FPGA

FPGA vs GPU, What to Choose?

27/02/2019, hardwarebee

Whenever you are starting a new project, one of the first steps is to determine what technologies you will be needing in order to start the development process, knowing that you will meet the target cost and performance.
 
In fact, today there are several technologies to choose from, but

fpga internal structure

Field programmable gate arrays (FPGAs) are a type of reconfigurable integrated circuit made up of configurable logic blocks (CLBs) which themselves consist of look-up tables (LUTs) as well as other logic such as registers and logic gates. LUTs are the perhaps the core element of CLBs as they can be

The Ultimate Guide to FPGA Design Flow

17/02/2019, hardwarebee

This article describes the entire FPGA design flow along with the various steps required in designing an FPGA — from the very beginning to the stage where the design can be upload to the FPGA. But before that, let’s first introduce the FPGA technology very quickly.
 
A Field Programmable
