“Innovation is taking two things that exist and putting them together in a new way.“

Field Programmable Gate Arrays are semiconductor devices that are based around a matrix of configurable logic blocks (CLBs) connected via programmable interconnects. FPGAs can be reprogrammed to desired application or functionality requirements after manufacturing. Fixed can be converted into programmable by replacing the GATES by LUT.

The Webinar began with a warm welcoming speech and the introduction of Mr.Gowtham Balaji , who is a Digital Design Engineer in United kingdom. The Webinar was commenced by the speaker Mr. Gowtham balaji by 5pm and started really good about “FPGA AND THEIR APPLICATIONS”. The covered topics in the webinar were :
1.FPGAs – History,
2.Latest FPGAs in the market,
3.Industrial applications of FPGAs,
4.Intro to HDL and HVL,
5.FPGA Design flow.

FPGA Applications :

  • Testing a design using Simulation(SW) is slower than testing a design using Emulation(HW).
  • Also, real time behavior is achieved.
  • High Speed IO applications.
    Market available Controllers might not support field programmability.

He also provides a clear cut idea about the FPGA. Finally, there was a query session where all the doubts and questions were answered by the resource person. The event was conducted through MS teams from 5PM to 6:30PM on 13 /02/2021.
