Programmable logic radically changed the electronic system design landscape. It reduced board space needed for random logic, state machines and system interfaces. It allowed faster design cycles, made easy late term bug fixes and gave designers greater freedom to experiment and prototype. In-system programming of these devices has had a similar revolutionary effect. The ability to change the programmed content of programmable logic while it is on the board is equivalent to being able to redesign all thehardware - without changing a single component. This allows the possibility of providing field upgrades of your product to fix problems or to introduce new functionality. It allows designing in reconfiguration as an essential function of your system withdifferent capabilities swapped in as needed during run-time. Further it allows storage of different product profiles for retrieval as necessary to allow just-in-time configuration of systems to meet market needs. Recent developments...
