I've been looking at the Snickerdoodle. I see that some entrepreneurs are finally recognizing the power of having an FPGA available in automated projects. And at $55 a board they are definitely looking to compete with the Raspberry Pi and Arduino boards. There are pros and cons to something like the Snickerdoodle. A seemingly obvious pro is having everything on a single board, but that can actually be a con too depending on what a person is trying to do.
I'm currently looking at these for only $23 a piece:
RioRand® EP2C5T144 Altera Cyclone II FPGA Mini Development Board
$18 with free shipping. And it would take long enough to arrive that you could write a song about that!
I'd buy one if I had more than $6 in the bank!
