Hi there, and happy Thanksgiving Holiday to you in advance (even if you don't celebrate this little rascal). Personally I cannot wait until Thursday when we get to take the day off and eat far too much food (I can taste that Turkey now).
Until then, of course, there remain oodles of things to do. For example, I just received an email from a chum of mine who says:
Hi Max, your name keeps turning up in links I'm following, so I thought I'd go straight to the source, as it were...
I'm interested in some very small but easy-to-use FPGA (or any kind of PLD, really) boards for interfacing and control. By small, I mean I might only want a 32-bit counter, comparator, a small FIFO, and some glue logic.
I've seen some USB-hosted boards, but they tend to run in the $150+ range, and I suspect something as small as I need might be out there for $50 or less.
Sad to relate, the problem here is that I waffle on about all sorts of topics, but that doesn't necessarily mean that I have any clue as to what I'm blabbering on about. Thankfully, I have access to a huge pool of incredibly knowledgeable folks in this area...
.... what do you mean "Who?". I'm talking about you – the readers of Programmable Logic DesignLine. So, do you have any thoughts you'd care to share on this topic?
