you are asking in a 13 years old thread: quite a lot has changed in this time…
Surely the Divide operation is supported in the FPGA, even with SGL data since several years. BUT: a division (most often) requires a lot of resources in the FPGA!
So the recommendation is: avoid division, when possible…
"a division (most often) requires a lot of resources in the FPGA!", still i couldn't get this gerd..
by the way, i'm new to the FPGA concepts..so, can you elaborate this thing (dividing in FGPA)?
in FPGA you can use most functions you also use in "standard" LabVIEW on "standard" computer.
THe difference is: in standard PC "heavy" computations need more time, but in the FPGA "heavy" operations consume more "fabric"/"space"/"resources".
Keep in mind: the FPGA is a piece of hardware providing a limited amount of "computational units" (aka resources), but those resources can execute all at the same speed (more or less)…
