FPGAs have proven to be a valuable technology in today’s electronic industry, offering performance, time-to-market, and cost advantages. Evidence of their pervasiveness is the fact that almost every Printed Circuit Board (PCB) now contains at least one FPGA. But, does the process of putting the FPGA on a PCB compromise those highly valued benefits? This paper examines the move from ASIC to FPGA technology, and the impact of FPGA on board integration today.
