The design warrior's guide to FPGAs : devices, tools and flows

Clive "Max" Maxfield

Field Programmable Gate Arrays (FPGAs) are devices that provide a fast, low-cost way for embedded system designers to customize products and deliver new versions with upgraded features, because they can handle very complicated functions, and be reconfigured an infinite number of times. In addition to introducing the various architectural features available in the latest generation of FPGAs, "The Design Warrior's Guide to FPGAs" also covers different design tools and flows. This book covers information ranging from schematic-driven entry, through traditional HDL/RTL-based simulation and logic synthesis, all the way up to the current state-of-the-art in pure C/C++ design capture and synthesis technology. Also discussed are specialist areas such as mixed hardware/software and DSP-based design flows, along with innovative new devices such as field programmable node arrays (FPNAs). Clive 'Max' Maxfield is a bestselling author and engineer with a large following in the electronic design automation (EDA) and embedded systems industry. In this comprehensive book, he covers all the issues of interest to designers working with, or contemplating a move to, FPGAs in their product designs. While other books cover fragments of FPGA technology or applications this is the first to focus exclusively and comprehensively on FPGA use for embedded systems. This is the first book to focus exclusively and comprehensively on FPGA use in embedded designs. It features world-renowned best-selling author. It will help engineers get familiar and succeed with this new technology by providing much-needed advice on choosing the right FPGA for any design project.
