What is Field Programmable Gate Array?
 
There are two general types of digital integrated circuits: ASIC and Field Programmable Gate Array. ASIC (application specific integrated circuit) has a pre-defined one-specific hardware functionality which can’t be reprogrammed after manufacturing. Field Programmable Gate Array (FPGA) on the other hand can be
