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
Understanding FPGA resources (chapter 2)
Several principles and methods (chapter
Examples from applications in High Energy
Physics (HEP), Space and Radiobiology
(chapters 4 - 10)
