New FPGA Kickstarter Project

My friend Mike Jones and his pals just launched a kickstarted project today, 12/11/2013:
LOGi FPGA Development Board for Raspberry Pi – Beaglebone

The community oriented LOGi FPGA boards are powered by cost-effective Xilinx Spartan-6 LX9 devices.
There are two FPGA boards, LOGi-Pi and LOGi-Bone, plus some expansion add-ons, such as LOGi-EDU with joystick and many different peripherals, and LOGi-Cam with 640×480 camera module.

The LOGi-Pi can be used as a shield with Raspberry Pi. It has 4 PMODs.

The LOGi-Bone can be used as a cape with Beaglebone White or Blank. It has 2 PMODs.

You can use Xilinx’s free version of tools to do FPGA designs. The good news is, you don’t need JTAG programmer to unload your designs to FPGA. C-based loaders are provided. It is fast and easy. I’m glad to say I did contribute in this part of the project.

Go get them before they are all gone. Early adopter can get it only in $69 for one LOGi-Pi or LOGi-Bone. You’ll still need your own Pi or Bone.
