Definition of: FPGA-

Field Programmable Gate Array (FPGA) is semiconductor device that is based around a matrix of configurable logic blocks (CLBs) connected via programmable interconnects. It can be reprogrammed to desired application or functionality requirements after manufacturing. This feature distinguishes FPGAs from Application Specific Integrated Circuits (ASICs), which are custom manufactured for specific design tasks. Due to its programmable nature, FPGA can be an ideal fit for many different markets and applications like Networking, Machine Learning, Data Centers, High Performance Computing and more.
