bringing FPGAs to Mechanical Engineers

NO RATINGS
Clearly there will be major benefits, however today not many enginners from non related fields have the knowhow and the equipment to implement FPGA designs. It is important to start introducing FPGAs during the standard college years not only to electronics students. Then some nice and user friendly application software with low cost programmenrs.

It took some time to make the LabView userfriendly, so I feel it will also take some time for FPGAs.

Nice article. Thanks.
