Embedded Systems Design with Platform FPGAs: Principles and Practicesby Ronald Sass
Synopses & Reviews
This book will introduce professional engineers and students alike to system development using Platform FPGAs. The focus is on embedded systems but it also serves as a general guide to building custom computing systems. The text describes the fundamental technology in terms of hardware, software, and a set of principles to guide the development of Platform FPGA systems. The goal is to show how to systematically and creatively apply these principles to the construction of application-specific embedded system architectures. There is a strong focus on using free and open source software to increase productivity.
The organization of each chapter in the book includes two parts. The white pages describe concepts, principles, and general knowledge. The gray pages include a technical rendition of the main issues of the chapter and show the concepts applied in practice. This includes step-by-step details for a specific development board and tool chain so that the reader can carry out the same steps on their own. Rather than try to demonstrate the concepts on a broad set of tools and boards, the text uses a single set of tools (Xilinx Platform Studio, Linux, and GNU) throughout and uses a single developer board (Xilinx ML-510) for the examples.
A comprehensive resource on designing systems with the most flexible programmable logic device to date, the Platform FPGA.
The most comprehensive resource on designing embedded systems that leverage the increased performance and flexibility of the Platform FPGA.
The need for Platform FPGA system design skills is growing rapidly as market pressures place new demands on embedded systems designers. Platform FPGAs give these designers critical advantages but also introduce new challenges requiring both technical skills and engineering science to meet the complex requirements of modern embedded systems. Embedded System Design with Platform FPGAs: Principles and Practices provides a cohesive and self-contained reference to Platform FPGA technology and tools. This timely new book explains the principles and practical decisions that system developers face when using an FPGA device as the central computing platform for an embedded system.
Features Explains how to use the Platform FPGA to meet complex design requirements and improve product performance Presents both fundamental concepts together with pragmatic, step-by-step instructions for building a system on a Platform FPGA Includes real-world examples, detailed case studies, extended examples, and lab exercises
