  • No, you are missing the point. The FPGA is hardware and as such can outperform a precessor with speeds of up to 100 times faster (depending on the application fo course). It can work concurrently of course too. The support and documentation I agree is terrible and that is why you need a Compact Rio.

  • As somebody else said you need look no further than the Compact Rio from NI. Especially the low cost single-board RIO. It is dead easy to program using data-flow language (LabView) and the results are very powerful indeed. In fact a larger version of one of these is used at CERN on the Haldron collider! The one I have has 27 digital I/Os, 16 Analogue ADC inputs and 4 DAC outputs. If that doesn’t light your candle then nothing will.

No public wish lists :(
