Avoiding PCB Design Mistakes in FPGA-Based Systems
System design using FPGAs is significantly different from the regular ASIC and processor-based system design. This white paper will examine some of the contributing factors, and more importantly, provide one with the key criteria to design FPGA-based systems successfully. FPGAs have come a long way since they were introduced in the 1980s. Initially, FPGAs were used to create "Glue logic," an essential function not performed by other components on the board.
