Index Terms—Field programmable gate arrays, Memories, Memory architecture, Buffers Abstract—This research explored different memory systems on FPGA chips in order to show the various trade-offs involved with choosing one memory system over another. We explored the different memory components that are found on FPGA chips using the example of a Sobel edge detector. We demonstrated how the different FPGA chip's memories affected I/O performance and area. By exploiting the trade-offs between these… CONTINUE READING
