HuMANDATA's EDA-301 is a USB FPGA board powered by Altera's high-spec Cyclone IV E FPGA on a compact, 53 x 54mm PCB. A configuration device, on-board oscillators, user switches, and LEDs are mounted as minimum components of FPGA design and development. EDA-301 operates with 5.0 V external input or USB bus power.
The EDA-301 provides 56 user I/Os, which are divided into two I/O banks. FTDI's FT2232H (Dual channel USB controller IC) is equipped with one channel for a user communication interface and another channel is configured as an I/F for FPGA configuration and configuration device access.
No download cable is needed with original configuration tool BBC [EDA-301].
HuMANDATA's ACM/XCM series boards are designed on same PCB size and connector layout as the EDA-301 so it is easy to swap from one to the other.
HuMANDATA's EDA-301 is compliant with the RoHS Directive, and is designed for lead-free soldering.

David Patterson, known for his pioneering research that led to RAID, clusters and more, is part of a team at UC Berkeley that recently made its RISC-V processor architecture an open source hardware offering. We talk with Patterson and one of his colleagues behind the effort about the opportunities they see, what new kinds of designs they hope to enable and what it means for today’s commercial processor giants such as Intel, ARM and Imagination Technologies.
