Optimized FPGA VIs and Resource Utilization on the FPGA

Last Modified: March 30, 2016

FPGA resources are limited, so you must be deliberate in ensuring your Optimized FPGA VI will fit on the FPGA. When you finish creating an Optimized FPGA VI, estimate the FPGA resources the VI requires so you'll know if the VI fits as it is, or if you need to make adjustments to the code so that it will fit.

When you estimate FPGA resources, LabVIEW also reports the latency and initiation interval your VI can achieve given a requested clock rate and throughput. These metrics help you understand how your VI will perform on the FPGA.

A significant benefit of using an Optimized FPGA VI is that estimating FPGA resources it will use does not require compilation, thereby saving you time in your design process.
