Pipistrello: Spartan 6 development board with 64MB of RAM, High Speed USB, and HDMI

Posted on Thursday, August 9th, 2012 in dev boards, FPGA by DP

Magnusk designed the Pipistello Spartan 6 development board with the same IO headers as the Papilio One. It features 64MB of RAM running at 200Mhz, the FDTI FT2232H High Speed USB IC, HDMI output, and a micro-SD card holder.

So the only option left was to make my own board – basically merging the FPGA and LPDDR from the LX9-Microboard with the form-factor, wing interface and tool-set from Papilio, then adding all the needed interfaces on-board (and then some more to make it more interesting).

    The link seems to be down. What does it cost?
