Field Programmable Gate Arrays (FPGAs)

FPGAs, by embedding more and more time critical features within a system, need an enormous processing capacity. They are considered to be a reliable candidate for high performance systems, where the usage of standard cores (e.g. IP cores) lead to a significant decrease of time to market.

Designing a solution based on FPGAs has some advantages like:

  •  increased performance
  •  shorter time-to-market
  •  re-configurability
  •  cost efficiency
  •  reliability
  •  long term maintenance

System on Chip (SoC)

Nowadays, companies like Intel or Xilinx integrate the software programmability of a processor with the hardware programmability of an FPGA, providing unrivaled levels of system performance, flexibility, and scalability. On the same IC, an ARM based processor system consisting of a processor, peripherals and memory, interfaces with a FPGA fabric using a highspeed interconnect backbone.
At this moment we work on different projects using SoCs of Xilinx.
