FPGA Device-Level Design Decisions

5.1 Overview

This chapter addresses many of the critical device-level trade-offs and decisions that must be made during the device-level design effort. These decisions are important because they affect nearly every following design stage. Almost every design phase that follows the device selection will be heavily influenced by these architectural decisions. The decisions and actions discussed in this chapter can have a significant impact on a project’s final implementation and the efficiency of the design effort. The estimation of consumed FPGA resources and power are important elements of the FPGA selection process. It is critical that the component selected have enough design margin. The following ...
