A Field Programmable Gate Array or FPGA is an integrated circuit that could contain millions of logic gates that can be electrically configured to perform a certain task. But how does an FPGA compare to a microcontroller, microprocessor or an application specific IC?.   Microcontroller vs FPGA: The structure of a microcontroller is comparable to a simple computer placed in a single chip with all of the necessary components like memory and timers embedded inside. It is programmed to do some ...
Field-programmable gate arrays (FPGAs) are reprogrammable silicon chips. They can be programmed for different algorithms after fabrication. Modern FPGAs consist of up to millions of logic cells that can be configured to implement a variety of software algorithms. Although the traditional FPGA design flow is more similar to a regular IC than a processor, an FPGA provides significant cost advantages in comparison to an IC development effort and offers the same level of performance in most cases. & ...
