Yes, ZedBoard is very attractive. However, I think I'll wait for something cheaper. A $35 Raspberry Pi is low-cost. An $89 BeagleBone is low-cost. An $89 Avnet Spartan-6 LX9 MicroBoard is low-cost. Although ZedBoard does have a lot on it, I would call it "moderate cost" given that Xilinx touts the Zynq-7000's "starting price point below $15" in Xcell Journal (2Q2011).

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.
