    Can anyone explain what an FPGA is used for?

    Stands for “Field-Programmable Gate Array.” An FPGA is an integrated circuit that can be customized for a specific application. … These blocks create a physical array of logic gates that can be used to perform different operations. Because the gates are customizable, FPGAs can be optimized for any computing task

    Hello…as per my knowledge FPGAs have found their way into a number of industrial, scientific, military, and other applications that require the calculation of complex mathematical problems or transfer functions. There are many algorithms, such as the CORDIC algorithm, that you can use to calculate transcendental functions.

    Hi…i would like to share FPGA benefit. One of the benefits of FPGAs that make them such a good tool for working with measurement systems and other edge computing applications that require the processing of a large amount of data like embedded vision is that they are able to process in parallel. CPUs/GPUs work sequentially, processing one piece at a time, but with a well-configured FPGA you’ll be able to simultaneously intake and process the next batch of information before the first batch is done, giving a low latency.
