Field Programmable Gate Arrays or FPGAs in short, have become one of the most popular choices among digital engineers, having already taking a big share of the market among microprocessors and ASICs. Not only do FPGAs offer an affordable and relatively less expensive alternative to these other traditionally used embeddedRead More
Xilinx (NASDAQ: XLNX), the leader in adaptive and intelligent computing, today announced that the newly unveiled EdgeBoard, Baidu’s edge acceleration computing solution is enabled by Xilinx. The EdgeBoard is a turn-key solution which is available fully configured directly from Baidu. It can also be configured and customized as part of theRead More
Arasan today announced the immediate availability of its Total MIPI UFS 3.0 IP Solution for use with Xilinx FPGA’s. The Arasan UFS 3.0 Master IP and UFS 3.0 Device IP compliant to the JEDEC UFS 3.0 Specification have been prototyped on Xilinx FPGA’s. Arasan uses the built in Xilinx HighRead More
Generic definition of Synthesis by Princeton University dictionary: The combination of ideas into a complex whole.
Even our FPGA synthesis tool does exactly that.
It combines our ideas (logic description) written in HDL into macros available in FPGA. However it is not a one-step process. Several optimization techniques are
In this article, we will take a look at the features which distinguish FPGA from ASIC and subsequently, what applications and situations these characteristics make either of the two ideal for.
Both FPGA and ASIC are known technologies that have been around for several decades. Many electronic products that
FPGA stands for Field Programmable Gate Array. It is a digital programable chip that is used in electronic products and offers re-programmability capability. This semiconductor chip is based on programmable interconnection circuits and programmable logic blocks which can be modified to suit the needs of the user. With thousands ofRead More
