FPGAs have contributed significantly to Cloud Computing, Mobile Computing, Networking Speeds and Memory. Improvement in ESR and capacitance capabilities of Panasonic Polymers have allowed FPGAs to play a part in these advances. For more information on Data Centers and Data Archives, click here.
FPGAs have allowed multiple “Industrial” sectors to become more efficient. Key examples are improvements in Motor Control Systems, Programmable Logic Controllers (PLCs) and Safety Equipment.
High Performance Computing
Improvements in FPGA technology has enabled faster Software Writing to Hardware components and significantly faster processing times.
Changes over time in FPGA technology have optimized Automotive Production Systems and contributed to decreasing production lead times. Other technologies such as Adaptive Cruise Control and Collision Detection have also been in part due to FPGAs.
FPGAs have helped Wireless Base Stations to operate using more robust, optimal and complicated architectures. Previously these Base Stations used various macrocells. FPGAs have made microcell and even femtocell based technology possible.
Increased Bandwidth, Connectivity, QOS (Quality of Service) and faster packet processing are a result of FPGA optimization over time.
