How many times can an FPGA be configured?


My system requires continuous power cycling so I need to reconfigure my FPGA every time I power cycle.

How many times can an FPGA be configured?


Our FPGAs are SRAM based and as a result can be reconfigured as many times as required.

As long as the device is used within datasheet specifications (for example operating voltages, temperature, frequency,...), there should not be any limitation on the number of configurations.

If the device is used outside of datasheet specifications, product lifetime may be reduced.
