Introducing FPGA Central!
All of those related to the FPGA and VLSI segments, there’s reason to rejoice. The world’s first dedicated portal on FPGAs is here!
FPGA Central is said to be central place to find complete info about FPGA vendors, products, IPs, etc.
Field programmable gate array, aka, FPGAs is a semiconductor device containing programmable logic components called ‘logic blocks’, and programmable interconnects. They are especially popular for prototyping integrated circuit designs. Once the design is set, hardwired chips are produced for faster performance. Its flexibility and low cost of implementation is the key factor for its success.
FPGA Central aims to bring all FPGA related information under one central location. A vendor neutral place to find everything about FPGAs, CPLDs, EDA Tools for FPGAs.
FPGA Central has been created to provide a central place for FPGA vendors and users to share experiences and information about FPGA design, development, verification, validation, process, tools and products.
The sites major feature includes:
* Largest FPGA vendor directory (over 450)
* Vast product directory (over 800)
* IP catalog (over 750)
* Find FPGA events around the world
* FPGA discussion forums
* Latest FPGA news and press releases
* FPGA jobs listing
A release said: “We are enhancing user experience by providing reviews and ratings of all the listing on our Web site. The users are encouraged to discuss their problems and share thoughts.” This is just the beginning! Over the next couple of months, FPGA Central plans to add more features to help users to make more informative decisions and vendors to showcase their products.
Need I say more? I was also able to post two articles and the previous blog on the ISA-VSI awards on FPGA Central. Look forward to receiving the newsletters as well. At least, I won’t need to look around all over the Web for FPGA related stuff, and believe that FPGA Central would do the job for me.
