For sale: Used high end fpgas

(1/5) > >>

mribble:
I have a bunch of XILINX VIRTEX-4  XC4VLX200 FPGAs.  New these are over $5K each, but these are mounted to boards already (8 per board) and would need to be removed.  Does anyone know where I could sell something like this?


mikeselectricstuff:
Try ebay but I wouldn't be too optimistic about price. They may be 5K new, but if you were building things using $5K FPGAs would you risk buying from an unknown source?
And they're probably too old to be of interest for development/prototyping.
 

mribble:
I kind of figured as much.  If anyone has a cool use for these I could probably donate some of these to a cool project.  I just hate seeing such cool chips being wasted.

mikeselectricstuff:
Another issue with big FPGAs is that although possibly attractive for hobbyists, the free version of the software often only supports the lower end devices - people buying $5K chips can afford a few K for devtools.

JonnyBoats:
How about posting a photo? It would be fun to see what a 5K FPGA looks like ;-)
