Field Programmable Gate Arrays (FPGAs) are currently recognized as the most suitable platform for the implementation of complex
digital systems targeting an increasing number of industrial electronics applications. They cover a huge variety of application
areas, such as: aerospace, food industry, art, industrial automation, automotive, biomedicine, process control, military,
logistics, power electronics, chemistry, sensor networks, robotics, ultrasound, security, and artificial vision. This book
first presents the basic architectures of the devices to familiarize the reader with the fundamentals of FPGAs before identifying
and discussing new resources that extend the ability of the devices to solve problems in new application domains. Design methodologies
are discussed and application examples are included for some of these domains, e.g., mechatronics, robotics, and power systems.
