    FPGA BASED DESIGN AND PERFORMANCE ANALYSIS OF WIRELESS SENSOR NODES
    Pavan S Raut, Pankaj Rangaree

    The use of field programmable gate array (FPGA) can improve the processing performance of many systems, including wireless sensor networks (WSNs). Moreover, FPGA devices permit remote and runtime hardware reconfiguration, which implies benefits in WSNs deployment and maintainability and finally, cost reduction. Thus larger circuits can be realized using this module. Along with the logical implementation the wireless sensor node has also been designed and implemented to exhibit the functionality of the node’s transmitter, receiver and main controller before the actual deployment. Therefore, the node will support only those hardware components required by the target application and that will reduce the node power consumption. In this work the main task of FPGA based emulator is to optimize power requirement and analyze performance of real time applications in WSNs.
