FPGAs have profoundly shaped both the application space and performance levels of software defined radios—perhaps more so than any other single technology.


"FPGAs have clearly revolutionized embedded system board-level product design. FPGA vendors continue to compete by offering new features, better performance, higher density, and lower power."

- Rodger Hosking, Pentek Vice President and Cofounder
