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.

What are the engineering and design challenges in creating successful IoT devices? These devices are usually small, resource-constrained electronics designed to sense, collect, send, and/or interpret data. Some of the devices need to be smart enough to act upon data in real time, 24/7. Specifically the guests will discuss sensors, security, and lessons from IoT deployments.
