Programming an array of 250 Kgates
Although it’s perfectly possible to design FPGA applications using schematic diagrams with logic symbols, in practice this is usually done with a hardware description language. An advantage of the latter approach is that complex functions are often easier to express in algorithms than in schematics. Accordingly, in this installment we guide you through the process of programming an FPGA application.
