FPGAs in Client Compute Hardware
preprintposted on 03.02.2021, 04:42 by Michael Mattioli
Field-programmable gate arrays (FPGAs) are remarkably versatile. FPGAs are used in a wide variety of applications and industries where use of application-specific integrated circuits (ASICs) is less economically feasible. Despite the area, cost, and power challenges designers face when integrating FPGAs into devices, they provide significant security and performance benefits. Many of these benefits can be realized in client compute hardware such as laptops, tablets, and smartphones.
