The chapter deals with field-programmable gate arrays (FPGA). The basic stages are shown concerning evolution of programmable logic (from PROMs and PLAs to FPGAs). Next, the evolution of FPGAs is analysed. Three ages of FPGAs are shown. Next, the modern FPGAs produced by Xilinx and Intel (Altera) The last section is devoted to design methods targeting FPGAs. Basing on this information, we show how to execute calculations using digital signal processors, embedded memory blocks, and some components of Zynq 7000 by Xilinx.
