  • Ah, good to know! Thanks

  • Note: This FPGA's built in Flash can be used to store the configuration bitstream, and hence to boot-config the FPGA. This allows using the board stand-alone. That is not obvious in the description, and if a reader is familiar with other FPGAs, they might assume the lack of external serial flash means no stand-alone operation. And it would be encouraging to add the step of programming the flash for stand-alone operation in the tutorial. This is assuming I read the datasheet correctly.

  • Description says: "This is a ... fixed temp ... soldering iron." What is the temperature that this iron is fixed at? Does it, in fact, have temperature feedback, or is it simply a 30W heater? And at that, does the power (and hence temperature) vary with input voltage?

No public wish lists :(
