It is pretty awesome, basically a low/midrange zynq with all of the peripherals on one board.  It was designed with a mix of personal time, for-credit course time, and paid research lab time, and I have permission to make+sell the modules.

Now the bummer is that my old research lab (I've since left) does not want to continue down the path of development that we started with, so I've got this design but nothing to do with it.  Making a prototype to test version2 would be out-of-pocket money and while I'd like to have the module for personal use, I can't justify the cost for hobby use.

Anyone have ideas on what to do with the design?  I've put a ton of time into it and want to see it get good use.

To see the board+specs, go to zisworks.com, then click zis7020.

That does look nice.  What sort of backplane was it originally meant to plug into?

It was made originally for a reactive visual system.  The backplane connector breaks out 200 fpga i/o (four banks, 100% of the fpga-side of the I/Os on the zynq7020), two reference voltage inputs, and 7-16v dc power input.   All of the onboard peripherals are on the processor-side I/O.

Connector used: http://www.digikey.com/product-detail/en/jae-electronics/MM70-314-310B1-1-R300/670-2431-1-ND/2183605
