Remember the old days of FPGAs (field programmable gate array)? Looking back, the original technology seems fairly clunky. Its versatility and uses certainly have come a long way from the days when its logical gates required long hours of programming. It may not get the press coverage that microprocessors get, but today’s FPGAs are more accepted in tech than ever before and are armed with capabilities such as memory blocks, network interfaces and Advance RISC Machine (ARM) core designs. Many people might be surprised at the numerous and varied places FPGAs are in use. This blog is an examination of why and where FPGAs are working in tech and where we can expect to see them next.
