I am currently involved in designing a Compact Flash Peripheral --- a GPS Receiver for TDS Recon or PocketPC. The power consumption is very critical. Does anybody know any xilinx parts have requirements close to or less than 100mA?
Could anybody please let me know the advantages to use FPGA for the CF peripheral, other than a DSP or ASIC? You know the price is quite different.
Is it important for the CF GPS Receiver to support all three modes of CF (Memory, I/O, and True IDE)? If we want to support all 3 modes, which one is a better choice for the project, FPGA or DSP?
Could anybody please
Thank you very much in advance.
