So you want to submit content to FPGA Central?

Well now you can do just that !! We have been working hard to create an infrastructure so that the content on FPGA Central is driven by YOU and not just us. We have created a way for people to submit content to FC directly. Although to keep the content relevant we need to moderate some of the submission, but be assured we will be quick and fair about pulishing your contents to the world.
To submit a content visit . All we ask is be logged in before you submit the content.

And as always the FPGA Forums, are always open for you to converse with other FPGA enthusiasts.
Have Fun, let the world know what you know !!

Bored ? Want to change Careers? Or just Looking?

Then the FPGA Jobs Central is the right place for you. Job Central ( currently has jobs from USA. To find jobs either browse the job posting from across the web:

OR, use the search box on the top, to search different job roles at specific locations.

So go on and Find Your Dream FPGA Jobs ..

For those who are not in USA, it would be a good time to move to USA :-) but if you don't want to, we will be expanding our services to more countries as we go.

And ofcourse we love your feedback, so have that rolling.


Also check out FPGA Jobs Central at .

Looking for Books on FPGA?

Then FPGA Central is the place to be. We are excited to announce our latest addition to the feature list. Find all the FPGA related books listed under one place. To find the listing look at the Top menu for the Books links or go to .

We have partnered with Amazon , so you can buy the books directly from them using the FPGA Books Central.

If you would like to see any book that you don't see listed, let us know thru the feedback form.

Happy reading !!

Launching FPGA EDA Tool Central

We are excited to introduce the newest addition to the FPGA Central list of features. Now you can find list of all available FPGA related EDA Tools at one common location. Read reviews, write your own or just browse thru the list to find what works for you. It not only provides you list of EDA tools but also their category, platform, FPGA EDA Tool vendor and its description

The tools are tagged in various categories like: "Synthesis, Place And Route, Verification, Design Entry, Floorplanning, Signal Integrity, Backend, Configuration, Design environment, DSP Embedded Processor, Debugging" and continously growing.

We also have filter to help you filter the list with specific EDA Tool Category. So now if you want to search EDA Tools in "design environment" can totally do so.

As promised we will keep on adding new features to help you make more informative decisions and vendors to showcase their products. And do let us know if you see we mis-categorized something, or you would like to suggest a new tool or category.

More Refined Search in FPGA-IP Catelog is now possible!

Today we added new feature in IP Catelog, which will improve the quality of result. Initially you were only able to categorize IPs but now you can sort them by Vendors too. FPGA Central has over 750 IP lisitngs, in this way you can customize your search. So you can search IPs by categories, Vendors or the combination of the two. For e.g. If you want to look at all the DSP IPs from Xilinx's (or any vendor for that matter :-) select DSP from IP Category drop-down box, then Xilinx from IP Vendor box, click on search...& thats it!!!This feature is added to further enhance your experience.
And as always.....keep your feedback coming in our FEEDBACK section.

World's 1st FPGA Centric Portal goes LIVE!!

Aug 2 2007

FPGA Central is the central place to find complete information about FPGA Vendors, FPGA Products, IPs, FPGA Events, FPGA News and so much more.

Field Programmable Gate Array aka FPGAs is a semiconductor device containing programmable logic components called "logic blocks", and programmable interconnects. They are especially popular for prototyping integrated circuit designs. Once the design is set, hardwired chips are produced for faster performance. Its flexibility and low cost of implementation is the key factor for its success. Inspite of its gaining popularity over other semiconductor devices such as ASICs, Full Custom chips and Processors, there was no place to find all FPGA related information on the Internet. FPGA Central ( aims to solve that problem by bringing all FPGA related information under one central location and more.
FPGA Central is a vendor neutral place to find everything about FPGAs, CPLDs, EDA Tools for FPGAs."There are websites which either provide FPGA Blogs or small list of links from around the web, but none of these sites provide a complete portal for FPGA users. FPGA Central is created to provide a central place for FPGA Vendors & Users to share experiences and information about FPGA Design, Development, Verification, Validation, Process, Tools and Products."
The sites major feature includes:
* Largest FPGA Vendor Directory (over 450) -
* Vast Product Directory (over 800) - (
* IP Catalog (over 750) - (
* Find FPGA Events around the world - (
* FPGA Discussion Forums - (
* Latest FPGA News & Press Release
* FPGA Jobs listing

"We are enhancing user experience by providing Reviews & Ratings of all the listing on our web site. The users are encouraged to discuss their problems and share thoughts."
And this is just the beginning, over next couple of months FPGA Central plans to add more features to help users to make more informative decisions and vendors to showcase their products. It is a WIN-WIN situation for all.
For a limited time all the VLSI enthusiasts around the world can WIN FREE gifts like iPod, T-shirts, FPGA books & more. All you need to do is register for a FREE account with FPGA Central.
About FPGA Central:
FPGA Central is the world's 1st FPGA Portal. It is created to provide a central place for FPGA Vendors & Users to share experiences and information about FPGA Design, Development, Verification, Validation, Process, Tools and Products.
