Easier Connections

Posted by: Dave Vandenbout in Blog Post 2 years, 4 months ago

One of the real pains when using the StickIt! boards is trying to figure out how they connect to the FPGA pins. For example, you have to trace each I/O pin of an LEDDigits board through a particular socket of a StickIt! motherboard and over to the socket that holds the XuLA2 FPGA board. Then you have to follow the route from the XuLA2 I/O pin to the pin on the FPGA. Finally, you have to record that information in a user-constraints file and pass it to the FPGA compilation tools. <<more...>>

83 Boards. 25 Bucks.

A lot of product ideas don't work out. Sometimes they're infeasible. If not, you build it and find out it sucks. If not, you build more and your customers say they suck. (Or so few say that it doesn't suck that there's no reason to make any more.) If not, then you've got a winner. Congratulations. <<more...>>
