[Kickstarter] Mojo: Digital Design for the Hobbyist
« on: May 12, 2013, 04:07:00 am »
Hey all!

My first post on the EEVBlog Forum :)

Anyways, I came across this cool project on Kickstarter and thought i'd share:
www.kickstarter.com/projects/1106670630/mojo-digital-design-for-the-hobbyist

Its a neat little FPGA prototyping board containing:
* Spartan 6 XC6SLX9 FPGA (-2 speed grade)
* A microcontroller (ATmega16U4) used for configuring the FPGA, USB communications, and reading the analog pins
* 84 digital IO pins
* 8 analog inputs (via Atmel MCU)
* 8 general purpose LEDs
* 1 reset button
* 1 LED to show when the FPGA is correctly configured
* On board voltage regulation that can handle 4.8V - 12V
* On board flash memory to store the FPGA configuration file

I put my order in a month or two ago, and what do you know, it arrived in my hot little hands just the other day :)

Even though the kickstarter project is over, you can still buy it directly from the makers through their website:

Now to do something useful with it.... hehe!

This is awesome. For this price it'll finally be worth getting into the world of FPGAs. :)

Thanks very much for sharing!
