Max, thanks!  It makes a lot more sense looking at the link you posted.  There are a number of IOs that are pinned AND the edge connector was designed to interaface to their motor controller (Arrow Be In Motion).  Whew not a bad offering esp for the price.

@Robotics Developer: When I follow the $49 BeMicro CV kit link there is no data sheet or information availible.

I'm still not sure why the Arrow guys don't have this up, but try This Link

I am wondering what Altera's plan was behind using the edge connector?  I am sure that they had something particular in mind, is there going to be another offering for development kits that uses this module as an add on?  Chalk it up to just one more thing that makes me go "Hummm".

No problem! yeah, might be a pain to prototype with, having that configuration.

Thank you!  I was wondering about the device as it was listed in the link as being in stock but I couldn't see it.  I guess I won't be using it as the 80pin edge connector won't help me much.  It would have been really interesting if it pinned out to either holes or pins (100mi/) for easy access / prototyping.  Thank you again for the link!

Hmmm, strange -- I'll ask the folks at Altera to comment on this and hopefully provide us with a better link.

When I follow the $49 BeMicro CV kit link there is no data sheet or information availible. I would like to see and understand what the kit consists of.  The other links seem to work just fine and I like the $179 Cyclone V GX Starter kit.  Looks to be an interesting offereing.  Thanks for the pointers, hope the first link gets fixed.
