    Hardened DSP advantages include: less resource expenses, greater power efficiency, reduction of FPGA design complexity and shorter development time. Our hardened DSP demonstrates Rx datapath flexibility through 96tap pFIRs used to apply equalization across frequency data. A disadvantage of hardened DSP is that it has a sole function, meaning you can't use it as an elementary building block to 'tweak' the available DSP to your specific use case.
