Analog Discovery 3 Review:

Proper tooling applied @10:27  :-+

Not too shabby design.
(The current price of the XC7S50 is completely nuts. About $87 per 1. Never seen something like this. The Spartan-7 is kinda the "entry-level" FPGA at Xilinx. And the -50 version is not the smallest for sure, but still relatively modest. Sure you may have better deals buying direct, but still. Expect about twice what it would have cost a couple years ago...)

Hard to know as Digikey FPGA pricing is always off. Grey market has XC7S50 as low as $20 each:

Looks a bit mechanically flimsy to me for that price.  Those funny looking rounded BNC jacks seem to be soldered to the PCB.  I have the AD2, which is nice and useful but doesn't pretend to be some kind of benchtop instrument, unlike this unit which is probably so light that it will go flying across the room as soon as you pull a coax.
