FPGAs: Fundamentals, Advanced Features, and Applications in Industrial Electronics

Juan Jose Rodriguez Andina, Eduardo de la Torre Arnanz, Maria Dolores Valdes



This book explains the how and why of field-programmable gate array (FPGA) usage. It analyzes fundamental architectures of FPGA devices, providing case studies and simple design examples. It also describes advanced features of the latest devices, exploring new resources enabling problem solving in new application domains, such as high-speed sensor interfacing and control of power converters. From basic circuits to state-of-the-art implementations, this text demystifies FPGAs for engineers who are not digital designers but need efficient digital solutions for their systems to be competitive.
