Application Notes and Technical Briefs
Engineers developing DSP and high speed logic applications are now well-aware that FPGAs can help them create an integrated, sophisticated solution. The availability of commercial off-the-shelf (COTS) FPGA boards can make these solutions viable and do so in reduced development times.
In this article, we discuss the tools and constructs available to help an FPGA application designer get the timing right.
It is now common to deploy COTS FPGA modules to help speed development cycles and reduce overall project costs. However, to maximize savings when FPGAs are used to perform custom I/O functions, it is very important to first determine the suitability of a particular FPGA module for the application.
Learn about FPGA-based system design for embedded computing I/O signal processing applications. This white paper discusses how Advanced Xilinx Virtex and Altera Stratix FPGAs make use of multiple digital clock managers and simultaneous parallel execution to rapidly compute a set of integrated processes including FFT, SERDES, FIFO management, logic sequencing, DDR control, and more. With integrated I/O and enablers such as a soft CPU and IP cores, plus tools such as Xilinx ISE, Altera Quartus, SimuLink, and MathLab; the FPGA can process logic much faster than any real-time system with less effort than ever before.
