Because FPGAs operate differently than standard PC processors, you need to keep in mind different considerations when you create a VI to run on an FPGA target versus when you create a VI to run on a PC. The following palettes contain objects with FPGA-specific considerations.
The details for each palette object include a table with the following FPGA-specific considerations.
Single-Cycle Timed Loop—Specifies whether you can use the VI or function inside a single-cycle Timed Loop.
Usage—Contains information about the behavior of the VI or function when used in an FPGA VI.
Timing—Contains information about the amount of time the VI or function takes to execute. Outside the single-cycle Timed Loop, this information refers to the number of clock cycles a VI or function takes to execute. Inside the single-cycle Timed Loop, this information refers to the combinatorial path length of the VI or function.
Resources—Contains information about the FPGA logic resource usage of the VI or function.
