Overview

Timely, authoritative, application-oriented. an in-depth exploration of current and future uses of FPGAs in digital systems The development of field-programmable gate arrays (FPGAs) may well be the most important breakthrough for the microelectronics industry since the invention of the microprocessor. Using FPGAs, a system designer working on a PC can now develop a working prototype in a few hours and change it at will in just a few minutes, rather than waiting weeks or months for a printed-circuit assembly or a custom integrated circuit to be built. This newfound ability to change a system by simply altering its configuration memory is also leading to exciting new forms of computing, such as array applications that exploit parallelism. Now in a book that functions equally well as a working professional reference and a pedagogically consistent computer engineering text, John V. Oldfield and Richard C. Dorf:
* Provide a detailed overview of FPGAs in digital systems design
* Explain the underlying principles, strengths, and limitations of most FPGA architectures
* Supply many real-life case studies, from elementary to advanced applications—including examples of "custom computing machines"
* Review cutting-edge developments, including new architectures and a new field-programmable interconnect chip
* Discuss key economic and business aspects of FPGA manufacture and applications and their role in intellectual property protection
* Demonstrate ways in which FPGAs offer plausible solutions to some of the major computing problems of our day

Due to unique advantages like security, improved testing, and reprogrammability, field programmable gate arrays are making broad inroads in the electronics industry. This comprehensive overview of the topic explains the underlying principles, strengths and limitations of a range of FPGA architectures. Includes abundant references and illustrations.

Booknews
A professional reference and computer engineering textbook on a technological breakthrough that allows a computer designer to develop a working prototype in a few hours then alter it at will in a few minutes, rather than waiting weeks or months for a printed-circuit assembly or custom integrated circuit to be built for each change. The topics include the underlying principles, strengths and limitations, case studies, new architectures and chip, and economic and business aspects. Annotation c.
