Instant Access Memory Design based on an FPGA
Since the days when they were only a small bunch of logic gates that could design any Boolean Function, Field Programmable Gated Array (FPGA) have come a long way and evolved into many complex chips. The FPGAs have now become a very essential part of the semiconductor and Very Large Scale Integration industry. This paper presents a memory design, based on FPGA which can locate the address required by CPU almost instantly. This memory design works efficiently in Memory intensive jobs also. In this paper, the same hardware architecture has been designed and synthesized with different memory sizes and then they are compared by analyzing the number of lookup tables (LUTs) they use, their on-chip power and the delays associated with them.
