This book is mainly intended for those users who have had certain experience in digital control systems design, but for some reason have not had the opportunity or the need to design with modern field-programmable gate arrays (FPGAs). The book aims at providing a description of the possibilities of this technology, the methods and procedures that need to be followed in order to design and implement FPGA-based systems, and selection criteria on what are the best suitable and cost-effective solutions for a given problem or application. The focus of this book is on the context of embedded systems for industrial use, although many concepts and explanations could be also valid for other fields such as high-performance computing (HPC). Even so, the field is so vast that the whole spectrum of specific applications and application domains is still tremendously large: transportation (including automotive, avionics, railways systems, naval industry, and any other transportation systems), manufacturing (control of production plants, automated manufacturing systems, etc.), consumer electronics (from small devices such as an air-conditioning remote controller to more sophisticated smart appliances), some areas within the telecom market, data management (including big data), military industry, and so forth.
