A major transformation is occurring in the area of electronic system design. Programmable logic devices are providing designers with an environment to develop circuits with densities of 10M+ system gates, frequencies over 300 MHz, and embedded processors, enabling complete system integration. This technology leap is causing a shift in the design process by providing a comprehensive methodology outside the ASIC arena.
