Field Programmable Gate Array (FPGA) consist of array of configurable logic blocks with dedicated Multiplier, DSP block, Clock management block and I/O bank to construct any digital logic circuit. The advantage of FPGA is unlike microcontrollers it consist of reconfigurable hardware. With microcontroller only software configuration is possible. Also concurrent execution is possible with FPGA parallel architecture.
FPGA is used in wide range of applications ranging from consumer electronics, Aerospace & Defence, Wireless Communication, Security Systems, Video and image processing.
All about FPGA brings you the ready to develop basic to advanced application FPGA boards. The EDGE FPGA boards consist of plenty of on board interfaces which will be helpful in learning FPGA concepts without additional accessories.
Some of the features of EDGE FPGA kits include On-board USB Programmer/USB UART, WiFi/Bluetooth Connectivity, ADC/DAC Converter, Camera/TFT Interface, VGA/HDMI Display Port, 7 Segment/LCD and Lot of Switches/Push Buttons/LED's, Temperature sensor, LDR, buzzer, Stereo Jack, SPI Flash and lot more.
EDGE FPGA kits for fully compatible with Free version of Xilinx software so no additional development cost for tools. EDGE Spartan 6 FPGA kit works with Xilinx ISE Design suite and EDGE Artix 7 FPGA kit works with Xilinx vivado design suite.
