Looks good for a FPGA board
TonyTib   5/28/2014 8:09:22 PM
At a glance, looks similar to the Papilio Pro board, so the Kickstarter pricing is pretty good.  The IDE looks nice.

Great little boards

I also highly recommend Papilio.  I recently got a Papilio One with 250K gate Spartan 3E and FTDI USB chip for JTAG programming and serial access.  At US$38 it's the cheapest USA board I know of with a large FPGA.  DUO will give you a lot more capacity, performance, and RAM.

Update: I backed it.  The Early Bird boards are going fast -- fewer than half left.  Project just passed 30% funding.  I've done a lot of work with Xilinx Spartan-II, Spartan-IIE, Spartan 3A, and Spartan 3E.  Should be interesting to check out Spartan 6 when the boards come out of the oven :-)

Wing interface

The Wing interface on the Papilio boards is pretty easy to use. I've designed a couple wings myself.

I've got one that has spots for GPS, IMU and RTC modules, as well as two Pmod ports. The Pmod is an interface layout used by a a number of development board companies. This one will be used with a Papilio on my tele-presence robot at some point. I can use it with any of my Papilios. Presumably, designing one for this new Papilio would be just as easy.

Darn. I missed the Zero day award. I did, however, make the Early Bird Special, and upgraded to 2MB of RAM, and the Classic Computing Shield. Jack's at 25% of his goal after just launching today. Very nice.

I already own an original Papilio and a Papilio Pro. This one sounds like a great addition to my set.

If you're interested in exploring the worl of FPGAs, I highly recommend one of Jack's Papilo boards.

As data rates begin to move beyond 25 Gbps channels, new problems arise. Getting to 50 Gbps channels might not be possible with the traditional NRZ (2-level) signaling. PAM4 lets data rates double with only a small increase in channel bandwidth by sending two bits per symbol. But, it brings new measurement and analysis problems. Signal integrity sage Ransom Stephens will explain how PAM4 differs from NRZ and what to expect in design, measurement, and signal analysis.
