When developing an Optimized FPGA VI, consider the performance you want the VI to achieve when it runs on the FPGA. Performance criteria for an Optimized FPGA VI include clock rate, throughput, latency, and the initiation interval.
Initiation Interval = Clock Rate / Throughput
The following image provides a visual explanation of the relationship between the Optimized FPGA VI performance directives and achievable performance. If clock rate is 200 MHz, then the performance values are as follows:
