FPGA Programming Services
Developing a cost-effective solution sometimes requires custom FPGA board programming due to a lack of necessary software or hardware capabilities.
We can define several reasons why FPGA programming is your best choice: power-consuming real-time algorithms, lack of required interfaces, or it is preferable to use hardware for some functions (especially in safety critical systems).
What are FPGAs?
FPGA stands for a field-programmable gate array and refers to a process of hardware customization on a single integrated circuit. FPGA boards can vary in form factors, programmable components number, memories, and purposes, but all serve to provide desirable flexibility.
