What’s an Xcelerator Block?
An Xcelerator Block is an optimized hardware implementation of a unique processor intensive function. Since everything needs a cool acronym, we simply refer to one of these blocks as an “XB”.
Snō ships with pre-installed XBs that target application-specific behavior. These are listed on the right. Snō can be field-updated to change the XBs implemented on the FPGA. Learn more about XBs on the Xcelerator Blocks page.

Floating Point Math
One of the goals of the drone project that I am sponsoring at the University of Idaho is to reduce power. Most drone control systems utilize several microprocessors which draw power. I wanted to have the control system implemented in a single FPGA with an embedded uProcessor. The Alorium products were exactly what I wanted and allow me to customize my FPGA design. More importantly, I can do it with simple, easy to use tools.
