and FPGA stands for: Field Programmable Gate Array.trinity said:VLSI- Very large scale integration (Its a technique used to fabricate ICs )by integrating a large no of components.
DSP- Digital Signal Processing. Used to basically sample analog signals and condition them to transform them to digital form for processing.
Why don't you check the site of Xilinxtrinity said:we are working on the following project topic --"VLSI Design of a general purpose DSP processor" . if any of u can identify with this topic then please reply so that we can discuss the challenges that we will be requiring to face.
