FPGAs Bulk-Up for DSP and System Roles

Gone are the days when FPGAs served merely as peripheral I/O interface devices or as glue logic between major system chips. Today FPGAs are major system chips in their own right, often Read More...

FPGA Designers Need ASIC-Style Design Tools

Today’s FPGA devices now rival both the size and complexity of traditional ASICs. Yes, EDA software used for the design of FPGAs has been slow to change. FPGA designers now face pRead More...

FPGA-Based Strategies Ease Complex Test Tasks

It is no secret that the number of electronic subsystems inside modern military, commercial aviation and aerospace vehicles is ramping up fast. Suppliers face competition in all marketsRead More...

FPGA Cores Enhance Radar Pulse Compression

For decades pulse compression has brought its many advantages to radar systems. First implemented with analog sweep generators and correlators, pulse compression is today almost exclusiRead More...

Analyzer Core Choices Critical in FPGA Debug

Early in the design process, engineers developing FPGA-based systems make critical decisions, consciously or unconsciously, that determine how “debug-able” their design willRead More...
