FPGA?

Has anyone seen or heard or used a controller with an FPGA [Field Programmable Gate Array] chip...
These chips are reconfigurable either at develop time or run-time via compiled logic injection which takes from 10 nanoseconds to 100 milliseconds... Typically the chip can be configured with a number of controllers as well as a core... You can find the tech called Xilinx [Goog's]

I find it cool because effectively, if the main board design permitted, you could design software which might self optimize and re-inject itself into the chip to improve efficiency or operations or shift functional focus as needed...

FPGA's are becoming popular and moving beyond the development only environment and into mainstream into things like tablets, hardware controllers and sophisticated relays which can be optimized or refocused as needed...

hi!!
you can begin read this

http://www.ijcas.org/admin/paper/files/e1-2-14.pdf


This shows the design methodology of a biped robot controller using FPGA(Field Programmable Gate Array). A hardware system consists of DSP(Digital Signal Processor) as the main CPU, and FPGA as the motor controller. By using FPGA, more flexible hardware system has been achieved, and more compact and simple controller has been designed..

Folks... Just an update on a product or two I found...
They are FPGA boards with IO outputs...
The thing is reconfigurable so when motion and timing efficiencies are developed the board can be reconfigured to suit... pretty kewl. Anyways...

and

http://www.easyfpga.com/ez1cusb_features.htm

P.S. these aren't just for Kondo's they will suit pretty much any kit with a heartbeat.

P.S.S.
Learn about FPGA from the ground up...
