FPGAs

April 3, 2008

I have recently bought myself a little FPGA kit to play with, for those who dont know what they are they are Field Programmable Gate Arrays and they are incredibly versatile in application! :) Such fun…

Applications of FPGAs is especially appropriate to things which take advantage of the parallel architecture.  One such area is code breaking, in particular, they are effective for  brute force attacks of cryptographic algorithms.
