What can you do with FPGAs?
Uses for FPGAs cover a wide range of areas—from equipment for video and imaging, to circuitry for computer, auto, aerospace, and military applications, in addition to electronics for specialized processing and more.
What is a FPGA bank?
In Xilinx FPGAs, a bank is a group of I/O pins that share a common resource such as one power supply or one output current reference.
What is a FPGA pin?
The power pins fall into two categories: “core voltage” and “IO voltage”. The core voltage is named “VCC” for Xilinx and “VCCINT” for Altera. It is fixed (set by the model of FPGA that you are using). It is used to power the logic gates and flip-flops inside the FPGA.
What is FPGA programming?
What is FPGA programming? A field-programmable gate array (FPGA) is an electronic device that includes digital logic circuitry you can program to customize its functionality. An FPGA that also includes a processor on the device is called a system-on-chip, or SoC FPGA.
What does FPGA engineer do?
What Is an FPGA Engineer? An FPGA engineer uses Hardware Description Language (HDL) to develop and test the configuration that is programmed into these circuits. They may also be responsible for integrating several FPGAs together to form a more complex working system.
How is FPGA configured?
There are three classical ways to configure your FPGA:
- You use a “JTAG cable” from your PC to the FPGA, and run a software on your PC to send data through the cable.
- You use a microcontroller on your board, with an adequate firmware to send data to the FPGA.
How do I learn FPGA?

How are FPGAs used in high-frequency trading?
High-Frequency Trading (HFT) systems require extremely low latency in response to market updates. This motivates the use of Field-Programmable Gate Arrays (FPGAs) to accelerate different system components such as the network stack, financial protocol parsing, order book handling and even custom trading algorithms.
