Advantages and disadvantages of FPGA

FPGA is one of the most popular logic circuit components and has revolutionized the way digital system are design. Here this article gives information about the advantages and disadvantages of FPGA to know more details about it. 

Advantages of  FPGA :
  • Reconfigurable computing
  • Low cost
  • High density
  • High speed
  • A large amount of logic gate, register, RAM, routing resources
  • The manufacturing cycle is too much costly, lengthy and engages lots of manpower
  • It is easy to upgrade like in case of software
  • Unique application
  • Flexible 
  • Reusable
  • Mistake not detected at design time have a large impact on development time and cost
  • Reconfigurable computing
Disadvantages of  FPGA :
  • Slower 
  • Size of dataset
  • Complexity
  • More expensive than custom silicon
  • No analog stuff
  • Can not get as much circuitry a single chip
