Embed often uses FPGAs. These FPGAs have many advantages in the flexible development of embedded software applications, because they offer a lot of flexibility over conventional devices and/or microcontrollers. Applying standard softcore CPUs allows using standard development tools to build efficient designs.
The usage of FPGAs was challenging for Embed. Using FPGAs was a challenge, because it imposes new demands on the design and prototyping proces of embedded electronics. The most important changes are:
Embed wanted to make the usage of FPGAs simple and quick for future developments. That is why Embed designed a prototyper. With this prototyper Embed can immediately start projects, without encountering new FPGA requirements.
Embed has used FPGAs in various projects:
Embed has used various types of FPGAs:
