Part of the process of fast prototyping involves understanding the best setup. With any kind of programmable firmware, FPGA for an electro-optics setup can be very useful. For feedback loop control, design parameters that are simple to reconfigure and even basic hardware testing, FPGA is a valuable tool in your toolbox.
Using a field-programmable gate array or FPGA microchip involves using its ability to easily be reprogrammed. Many types of processors just run software applications, but FPGA chips rewire to implement your intended function. This can work through numerous types of hardware platforms, embed in many types of systems and can control everything from the angle of scan or power source to the settings of a detector, as well as other functions.
