FPGA - Field-Programmable Gate Array

A Field-Programmable Gate Array (FPGA) is a semiconductor device which can be programmed by the designer after manufacturing. Configured by hardware description language (HDL), FPGAs contain logic blocks which are connected and working together using a structure of reconfigurable interconnects. In many high performance FPGAs, these logic blocks also have access to on-chip memory or even embedded microprocessors.
For example, FPGAs are used in DSPs, as well as in digital audio and lighting consoles and offer the possibility to update functionality after shipping.
