Verification and Validation of Field Programmable Gate Arrays in the Aerospace and Defense Industry
Field Programmable Gate Arrays (FPGAs) are finding an increasing number of applications in the Aerospace and Defense Industry. The field-programmable gate array (FPGA) is a semiconductor device that can be programmed on the field—after manufacturing—for product features and functions, new standards, and specific applications. They provide rapid prototyping, easy debugging at an optimized cost, and help lower the risk of product obsolescence. Successful implementation of FGPAs require in-depth knowledge, a security-based development cycle, process adherence and expertise.
