Chapter 12. Field Programmable Gate Array Testing

Charles E. StroudAuburn University, Auburn, Alabama

About This Chapter

Since the mid-1980s, field programmable gate arrays (FPGAs) have become a dominant implementation medium for digital systems. During that time, FPGAs have grown in complexity as their ability to implement system functions has increased from a few thousand logic gates to tens of millions of logic gates. The largest FPGAs currently available exceed a billion transistors. The ability to program, or configure, FPGAs to perform virtually any digital logic function provides an attractive choice, not only for rapid prototyping of digital systems but also for low-to-moderate volume or fast time-to-market systems. The ability to reconfigure ...
