Configurable Logic Block (CLB)

The Configurable Logic Block – A Quick Look

In this post, we will quickly review the Configurable Logic Block (CLB) and how it has changed over the years.  In 1984, Xilinx introduced the first FPGA to the world, the XC2064. This FPGA formed the backbone of later device families and the design flow leveraged the Xilinx XACT tool.  Nearly 40 years later, FPGAs … Continued

Unlocking the Power of Cross Triggering on FPGAs

Understanding Cross Triggering (and why it's your friend) Cross triggering is a useful technique to help with debugging FPGAs. Field-Programmable Gate Arrays (FPGAs) are extremely versatile hardware platforms known for their ability to implement custom digital logic in the matter of seconds through the uploading of a bitstream. The applications of FPGAs range through many … Continued
