Additional Info
This book is an introduction to applications of Field Programmable Gate Arrays (FPGAs) in various fields of research.

It covers the principle of the FPGAs and their functionality. The main thrust is to give examples of applications, which range from small one-chip laboratory systems to large-scale applications in "big science". 

A primary topic of this book is resource awareness in FPGA design.

The materials are organized into several chapters:

Understanding FPGA resources (chapter 2) 

Several principles and methods (chapter 3)

Examples from applications in High Energy Physics (HEP), Space and Radiobiology (chapters 4 - 10)
