Accurate FPGA Power Modeling
Maximizing FPGA Processing and Channel Density in SWaP-Constrained EW Applications through Accurate Thermal Modeling
Historically the advancements in FPGA technology have supported each new generation of high-performance electronic warfare system. However, in the last few years a new limiting factor in FPGA performance is emerging. While modern FPGA devices have the size and speed to support processing-intensive EW and radar algorithms, they are unusable if the system fails to manage the heat generated by the devices.
