The technology of FGPA devices is a very important development in the field of embedded computing systems. In this graduate thesis we are dealing with this technology and trying to see the developments, as seen through some examples. These devices are different FPGA companies namely Altera, Xilinx and Atmel. We focus on families of devices such as Cyclone, Spartan-3 and AT40K and see, through their architectural structures, their differences and similarities. At the same time, using the corresponding tools of these companies, Quartus II, ISE and IDS - Figaro, we are designing and comparing the technological structures and infrastructures. The control and design is done through a number of benchmarks, namely 29, which "run" in each design tool. Through research of this postgraduate thesis, we believe that useful conclusions emerged that on the one hand covered some questions, but on the other, some new, more important were born.
