In this Maker Mind Meld Summit presentation, Jordan Christman explains how FPGAs work, and how you can use them in your projects alongside a microcontroller and microprocessor.
FPGAs is a fascinating topic because it entails the design of an integrated circuit using software tools after it has been manufactured and has left the fabricator.
You can program the FPGA hardware chip on your desk and configure what each one of several millions of gates inside the chip does.
There’s quite a bit of magic that is happening inside an FPGA, and Jordan will introduce us to this engineering magic.
Jordan’s presentation is one of many from the 2019 Maker Mind Meld online summit, and is now available for free access with the video and full transcript.
