    hi
    I have started working on the project "Control Of Automatic Vehicle wash m/c using FPGA".

    I have started working on the VHDL programming now taking reference of the older PLC programmes. However i need help with the selection of the FPGA. The main problem i am facing is that the machine requires around 60 IOs. Can you please help me with the selection of the FPGA boards, since i need to make it cost effective so that the industry starts using it.

    The technicians from Xilinx ask me about the amount of logic. How can i decide about the amount of logic, since i am working on these devices for the first time.

    Krutika.
    (Just passed my engg. so please help me as i am a newbie)

    thanks... i posted my message there

    Well i need help with the expansion of IOs basically. The FPGA do have the capacity of large no of IOs but the boards are usually not that big.

    Can anybody help with the expansion of IOs.

    Also the output of the sensors from the machine is 24V dc and the FPGA have all IO voltage as 3.3v. How can interface that.

    Any ideas
