FPGA-based Implementation of Signal Processing Systems (2008)

by Roger Woods, John McAllister, Ying Yi, and Gaye Lightbody. Woods_FPGA
Published by Wiley. ISBN#978-0-470-03009-7.

Description from the publisher:  Field programmable gate arrays (FPGAs) are an increasingly popular implementation technology in a wide range of applications in engineering fields, including communications, information, security and measurement. This type of semiconductor device can be reprogrammed after manufacture, meaning that designers have the power to create circuit architectures to suit their needs and achieve high levels of performance for many digital signal processing (DSP) applications. This gives a considerable gain over conventional microprocessors and dedicated DSP processors, in producing efficient and sometimes low-cost, solutions for many complex DSP systems. However, the key challenge is to create this ‘circuit architecture’ and represents the main focus of this book.

This book describes the methods and current tools for the design, optimization and implementation of DSP systems in programmable FPGA hardware. It presents a review of the leading-edge techniques in this field, analyzing advanced DSP-based design flows for both signal flow graph (SFG) based and dataflow-based    implementation on FPGA, system on chip (SoC) aspects, and future trends and challenges for FPGAs. This text details the automation of the techniques for component architectural synthesis, computational models, and the reduction of energy consumption to help improve FPGA performance.
