Advanced FPGA Design: Architecture Implementation and Optimization

Steve Kits

Abstract


This book provides the reader with issues of advanced
FPGA design as the underlying theme of the
work. In practice, an engineer typically needs to be
mentored for several years before these principles are
appropriately utilized. The topics that are discussed
in this book are essential to designing FPGA's beyond
moderate complexity. The goal of the book is to present
practical design techniques that are otherwise only
available through mentorship and real-world experience.
There are a number of books on FPGA design, but
few of these truly address advanced real-world topics
in detail. This book attempts to cut out the fat of
unnecessary theory, speculation on future technologies,
and the details of outdated technologies. It is written in
a terse, concise format that addresses the various topics
without wasting the reader's time. Many sections in this
book assume that certain fundamentals are understood,
and for the sake of brevity, background information
and/or theoretical frameworks are not always covered
in detail. Instead, this book covers in-depth topics that
have been encountered in real-world designs. In some
ways, this book replaces a limited amount of industry
experience and access to an experienced mentor and will
hopefully prevent the reader from learning a few things
the hard way. It is the advanced, practical approach that
makes this book unique.
