Configurable PMCs put an FPGA to work

Military Embedded Systems — July 13, 2007

Feature / Discussion: July 2007Reconfigurable computing isn’t a novel concept, but the idea of a configurable PMC using an FPGA, swappable I/O adapter modules, and I/O-specific IP is a new wrinkle. These configurable PMCs can help reduce design time by providing a platform for adding I/O to a single board computer with PMC sites. We explore the key architectural points to consider in designing around the configurable PMC concept.
