FPGA Development Boards
While there are several varieties of programmable logic (as shown immediately below), the focus here is on the FPGA.
Field Programmable Gate Arrays are integrated circuits or "chips" that
can be configured in the "field".
The term FPSOC refers to "Field Programmable System On Chip", and is used to describe FPGAs that have grown to sufficient size as to
allow for the placement of a whole "system" on the chip. The system may come as a hard "core" placed on each device, which takes up
space and resources whether used or not, or soft cores that can be optionally added.

- (CPLD) Complex Programmable Logic Device
- (FPGA) Field Programmable Gate Arrays
- (FPSOC) Field Programmable System On Chip
- (FPIC) Field Programmable InterConnect

FPGAs are often categorized further by their required programming techniques:
- "One time" programmable
- "In circuit" programmable
A variety of tools, Verilog, VHDL, schematic capture, etc., are typically used to create the design. Vendor specific tools are then utilized to
place and route the design and target a particular device.
