FPGA


2.2.2. FPGA

FPGA-Field Programmable Gate Arrays
Field Programmable Gate Array (FPGA) are off-the-shelf ICs that can be programmed by the user to capture the logic. There are no custom mask layers so final design implementation is a few hours instead of a few weeks. Simple FPGAs are used for simple functions.
·         FPGAs are increasingly displacing standard cell designs.
·         Capable of capturing 100,000+ designed gates
·         High power consumption
·         High per-unit cost
·         FPGAs are also slow (< 100 MHz)
