2000-06-22 A guide to using field programmable gate arrays (FPGAs) for application-specific digital signal processing performance
This application note describes the benefits of using an FPGA as a DSP coprocessor, as well as, a stand-alone DSP engine. Two case studies, a Viterbi decoder and a 16-Tap FIR filter are used to illustrate how the FPGA can radically accelerate system performance and reduce component count in a DSP application.
2000-03-01 Taking new stabs at programmable analog
Programmable logic has some traditional advantages over ASIC design. The gate count of FPGAs approaches that of custom circuits. FPGAs can be programmed?and re-programmed?out in the field, enabling fast time to market. ASICs, in comparison, need careful attention to layout and fabrication technology. It can take anywhere from six weeks to two years (depending on the complexity of the circuit) to get an ASIC working properly
