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 […]

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, […]
