What are Production-Ready Integration Modules and How Do I Benefit from Them?

When it comes to creating and evaluating embedded solutions, most if not all engineers will be familiar with an evaluation board. However, they may not be familiar with the applications and advantages of production-ready integration modules. In this blog we are going to look at Opal Kelly’s production-ready integration modules, discuss their applications in the […]

Accelerating Data Acquisition and Signal Processing with High Level Synthesis and the FrontPanel SDK

Data acquisition and signal processing are ubiquitous across a range of applications, from consumer and industrial to automotive, aerospace, and beyond. A common trend across these wide-ranging applications is the ability for the signal processing system to support an increasing number of different sensor modalities with higher sampling rates and faster response times. This trend […]

High Performance FPGA-Based Signal Generator using the XEM7320, FrontPanel, and SYZYGY DAC

The ability to work with analogue signals is critical for many FPGA based systems, after all the world is analogue. Depending upon the application the FPGA solution may be required to receive, process or generate analogue signals. Example applications range from generating simple ramps for pulse width modulation (PWM), generation of reference waveforms (e.g. sine, […]
