High-level FPGA programming for nanosecond timing in terabit communication

Next-generation data communication using laser signals between ground stations and satellites will be at the terabit per second level. Given the high demands on data quality and processing speed, wavefront sensors and FPGAs are essential ingredients of the required communication terminals. Demcon and Qbaylogic demonstrate the potential of high-level functional FPGA programming.

Demcon acquires slice of FPGA specialist Qbaylogic

UT spin-off Qbaylogic intends to position its Clash language as the third language for programming FPGAs, in addition to and above VHDL and Verilog. Demcon’s involvement will enable the company to grow further and develop new products.
