FPGA Boards

Programmable logic technologies, such as field-programmable gate arrays (FPGAs), are an essential component of any modern circuit designer's toolkit. With their expansive capabilities uniquely suited to a wide array of applications, FPGA development boards are ideal for solving many of the problems facing the rapidly evolving technology sector. The key benefits of programmable logic technologies include immense flexibility, cost savings over custom silicon, and increased performance through hardware parallelism.

Note: Xilinx software tools are not available for download in some countries. Prior to purchasing a Digilent FPGA/SoC, please check the supporting software's availability, as it is required for the board's use.

In the world of embedded design, the reconfigurability of FPGAs outshines many alternatives. We offer something for everyone, with an abundance of reference material, support, projects, and documentation.

Specific applications using an FPGA board include digital signal processing, biomedical instrumentation, device controllers, software-defined radio, random logic, medical imaging, computer hardware emulation, voice recognition, cryptography, filtering and communication encoding, and more. Consumer electronics applications include smartphones, autonomous vehicles, cameras, displays, video and image processing, and security systems. FPGA dev boards are also used for many commercial applications, like in servers, and various markets, including aerospace and defense, medical electronics, and distributed monetary systems.

For beginners just learning or looking to explore the world of FPGA development tools, we recommend checking out our selection of introductory boards. These boards are designed to be ready-to-use without the need for additional accessories or hardware. They still have options for expansion through Pmod ports and some provide access to Arduino headers, allowing users to create more complex projects. Our introductory boards are great for small projects where affordability and ease of use is key.
