Chapter 3

Optimizing the Development Cycle

3.1 Overview

As in other specialized engineering disciplines, most successful FPGA design teams follow a defined design flow. The order and relationships between the required design steps are fixed for most projects. The highest level of the FPGA design flow starts with design specification and follows through to volume product manufacturing. Figure 3.1 illustrates the FPGA design flow at a high level.
