Robei FPGA design tool

Robei is the world smallest EDA tool for FPGA design and simulation. With this tool, you can design your hardware visually at anywhere, and view the simulation result through waveform. It is a tiny, fast software for hardware prototyping and verification.

A Visit With Blue Pearl Software

A few weeks ago I had the opportunity to visit Blue Pearl Software, one of the emerging EDA companies in Silicon Valley. Blue Pearl Software was started six years ago with the goal of doing design analysis at the functional level and providing designers with control of their design from RTL through synthesis.

Step-by-Step Description for MATLAB+ISE Co-Simulation using System Generator for Spartan/Virtex FPGAs

Planet FPGA


In this Post,we will discuss step by step explanation of MATLAB+ISE Co-Simulation.

We use these methods for Prototype Development. For example here I am explaining how to write a Generalized Program for Line Equation in FPGA.


FPGA Development Methodologies

This article describes FPGA methodologies and is intended for FPGA designers as well as managers. For it to be useful and relevant we need to calibrate our scope and definition of the topic since it can mean different things to different people.

How to select the right FPGA Device

We have all been in a situation where we are taunted by the task of selecting the right FPGA Device for the next project. This article talks about what factors to consider while selecting a FPGA Device. We encourage your to add your comments about any other considerations that you use while selecting the device. FPGA Central also offers FREE services to help you select the right Device / IP for your project. Find out more at

New tool enables mapping complex applications onto FPGAs

Today's powerful FPGAs are suitable for demanding applications. They can handle the complexity and performance needed for applications that include image and video processing. But there is a growing gap between what the FPGAs can deliver, and what the application designers can program to run on them. Complex applications contain up to tens of thousands of lines of code, a number that is still likely to increase. They are coded in high-level procedural languages such as C, C++, JAVA and C#.


Ultra Low Power Design Techniques for FPGAs

Power consumption is one of the most significant concerns apart from design complexity in FPGA design today. The concept of achieving System-On-Chip (SoC) functionality in an FPGA cuts down the design complexity yet power consumption is quickly becoming the most critical issue for the design community.

Why you may need USB Isolators

Whether or not you need to isolate a USB device from your computer is dependant on the application. When connecting a flash drive, isolation is rarely necessary. However, if you are connecting industrial instrumentation or remote I/O equipment to your computer, there is no easy answer. You must evaluate the environment in which the device is installed. Is the device is susceptible to ESD (electrostatic discharge), lightening, power surges, ground loops, differing ground potentials, EMI (electromagnetic interference), or RFI (radio frequency interference).

Neither VI nor Emacs are the most popular VHDL editor

In a small poll on the Sigasi, 220 people responded to the question: Which editor do/did you use before you heard about Sigasi?

We know that there is no reason to think that this test was representative of the entire VHDL development community, but the results are nevertheless interesting.Unlike what we had expected, the two ever present Unix editors, VI and Emacs (and their respective families) did not contest for the first place. In fact, the winner outran both VI and Emacs by far:
