  • I wish I could keep my bench that tidy ;)

  • I finally found it on the schematic, and yes, it does have a JTAG Port :)

  • This looks fantastic....but I would be more interested in re-purposing this board. Does it have a J-Tag port so that it can be re - programmed and debugged?

  • What is the resolution? Reading the manual, I get the impression that this is 3 3/4 digits. Is that correct?

  • That is always a tough call, but I have always found it better to make moves sooner, rather than later. Having to support Legacy software is always a pain, but it is better to make the move on your own terms rather than waiting to be forced.

  • I am surprised that you guys use Eagle, as that is not open source. I am using KiCad for schematic capture and PCB design. For mechanical drawings I am using Sketchup.

  • When I first started using FPGA's in 1992, using VHDL was an expensive alternative. Using schematic capture was the way I originally chose to enter in designs. Xilinx had a program that would translate the netlists and then would route the fpga from that. It was kind of funny, back then it took close to 45 minutes to route a 3,000 gate fpga. (XC4003). I used this method until about 2002, when I switched to Verilog. For me, the transition was fairly easy. I thought of the verilog more as a verbal description of a schematic rather than a programming language. I also do a lot of programming in C/C++, but I have always been able to keep my mindset for these two activities separate.

    By the way, is Sparkfun going to carry the Mojo? I at the very least would find this a very handy board.

  • Now, this is really nice. Been wanting to mess with the Spartan f6, but until now, all the dev boards seemed awfully expensive.

  • Gork really wanted to play Heavy Metal, but alas, he was made out of Beryllium.

No public wish lists :(
