  • I know you guys didn’t design this board - but a micro SD card on the bottom would be a killer addition. Also, minor typo in the description: “The Arcade MegaWingis”. Really glad to see SparkFun carrying more FPGA stuff. Thanks!

  • Please add a link directly to the UCF provided on the Product Page. The reason is the Gadget Factory website is ungodly slow.

    • The link to the UCF file was pointing to an old server - I updated the links to point to the new, fast server. Just in case here is a direct link that will always be up to date:

    • We try not to link to files that will be changed and revisioned. the UCFs will change over time, making our links outdated. I was able to download them without issue at all.
