18). Frequency synthesis: It may be that the frequency of the clock signal being presented to the FPGA from the outside world is not exactly what the design engineers wish for. In this case, the clock manager can be used to generate daughter clocks with frequencies that are derived by multiplying or dividing the original signal. com 32 Chapter 1 Clock signal from outside world with jitter Clock Manager etc. 18: The clock manager can remove jitter 1831: England. Michael Faraday discovers the principle of electromagnetic induction.

Com 36 Chapter 1 1832: England. Charles Babbage conceives the first mechanical computer, the Analytical Engine. 2 Configurable I/O Impedances The signals used to connect devices on today’s circuit board often have fast edge rates (this refers to the time it takes the signal to switch between one logic value and another). In order to prevent signals reflecting back (bouncing around), it is necessary to apply appropriate terminating resistors to the FPGA’s input or output pins. In the past, these resistors were applied as discrete components that were attached to the circuit board outside the FPGA.

In this case, each logic block can be broken down into smaller fragments, each of which can be used to implement a simple function. Thus, these architectures may offer advantages in terms of performance and silicon utilization for designs containing large numbers of independent simple logic functions. 4: A transmission gate-based LUT (programming chain omitted for purposes of clarity) If a transmission gate is enabled (active), it passes the signal seen on its input through to its output. If the gate is disabled, its output is electrically disconnected from the wire it is driving.
