Learn the difference between an FPGA and a microcontroller. There are a few important differences that may help you decide which to use.
- [Instructor] At this point, … FPGAs may sound similar to microcontrollers, … but it's very important to understand the difference. … First, FPGAs are flexible in that … they customize their internal connections. … On the other hand, microcontrollers can't behave … as anything other than microcontrollers. … They are application-specific integrated circuits, or ASIC. … Next, remember that an FPGA may implement a CPU, … so technically, an FPGA can achieve … more than a microcontroller. … Another key difference is that FPGAs … do not execute code, microcontrollers do. … And finally, embedded systems were originally based … in microcontrollers or microprocessors, … and over the years they have evolved … to include FPGAs as well. … …
