FPGA's use in complex sensor systems is growing rapidly.  Radar, communication, navigation, and weapon systems are increasingly relying on the speed, flexibility, and determinism that FPGAs bring to the table for signal and digital signal processing.  Although their usage in complex designs is growing rapidly, a certain mystery still surrounds good practices and techniques for high-speed FPGA designs.  However, the importance of these practices is becoming more important as clock speeds and bandwidths increase.  This webinar will introduce good practices to avoid common problems in FPGA firmware designs.  These techniques are useful for medium- and low-speed designs as well.
