FPGA is an integrated circuit package with a wide range of available logic cells. In this time of portable electronic devices, the need for smaller programmable logic devices is greater than ever. FPGA stands for field programmable gate array. The term "field programmable" is used to define a memory chip that is created or defined by individual users, rather than by the manufacturer.

When you equip your operating system with an FPGA device you can expect greater versatility in your applications. One of the main uses for these devices and programs is for portable audio players. Electronic devices like the I-Pod and other portable audio players use FPGA to transmit information and to store it permanently on small hardware devices. These players are essentially hard drives that are capable or sharing and storing information in a limited amount of space.

Xilinx FPGA and More

One of the leading manufacturers of FPGA packages is Xilinx. This company has been around since 1998, and has produced more than 70 million devices for all kinds of different applications. This company is known for producing devices with exceptionally large storage capacities. If you own a portable audio player, you know how important it is to be able to store a large number of songs, and other information. Even the lower-end models allow consumers to store thousands of songs in a small package.

Xilinx provides products and services for several different applications including aerospace and defense, automotive, consumer electronics, and wireless communications. In addition, you can find several testing devices that help to diagnose system failures and weakness in signal strength.
