Since my work involves FPGA, I have to study it. My previous work is in IC Mask Design and have realized that ASIC designs are high-risk projects. Since FPGA is programmable, meaning one can change the circuit in the chip without disposing of the hardware, it became a cheaper means of designing an electronic system since its NRE cost is lesser relative to ASIC's (in my case). I am using VHDL; however, one can program it using C or Verilog. The first time I encountered it, I thought VHDL stands for Verilog Hardware Description Language but I was wrong as will be noted on my next blog.
