Have you been thinking about jumping into FPGA development but are not sure how to get started? Well, take a look at the Papilio - an Open Source FPGA board with everything you need to get started at a low price. With a friendly and supportive community, free VHDL eBook, Open Source Arduino compatible Soft Processors, and plenty of code examples you will have all the resources needed to get you started on the FPGA path. It's never been easier to jump into the wide-open world of FPGA development!
The Papilio One 250K is our lowest cost board, but don't be fooled it still packs a heck of a punch! This board is fully supported by our DesignLab software which lets you build Soft Processor based System on Chip designs by simply drawing out the circuit you want. It is the most inexpensive way to try out DesignLab and drawing System on Chip designs. The only downside of this board is that it does not have much built in memory and does not include any external memory which means tha DesignLab projects that are memory hungry, such as VGA output, are not going to work with this board. But for simple Arduino style projects and learning Digital Electronics with VHDL/Verilog this board is the cheapest way to get started!
The Papilio One is a powerful, open-source, expandable development board perfect for the design and prototyping of your unique ideas. You can customize the capabilities of the Papilio with snap-on modular expansions called Wings (similar to Arduino shields) which provide added functionality to the board, and simultaneously expand the creative possibilities!
At its heart, the Papilio One 250k has a Xilinx Spartan 3E FPGA chip, providing a plentiful amount of digital logic to quickly get your prototyping off the ground. In addition, you can code for the FPGA using established development tools, or you can use Gadget Factory's custom Arduino IDE to easily write Arduino code and upload it to the AVR8 soft processor!
Check out some of the technical features the Papilio One 250k has to offer:
Papilio One 250k Features:
- Fully Assembled with a Xilinx XC3S250E and 4Mbit SPI Flash Memory
- Provides an Easy Introduction to FPGA, Digital Electronics, and System on a Chip design
