FPGA & ARM Development board
« on: February 12, 2010, 06:20:14 PM »

Hello Folks, its been a time im not around ,lack of time

I'm looking for a dev board that includes both an FPGA chip and a microcontroller (ARM might be fine).

Please let me know if you ever used or baught one, thank u

umm........ mbed?

 2x spi, 3x serial,2x i2c,can, usb,ethernet(not power over, results are fun though ;D ), 6x analog in, 6x pmw, 25 digital i/o, and a usb which is the bootloader/file system/usb to pc interface. 
takes 4.5-9V in, gives a 3.3V regulated out, 5V if attached to a powered usb, arm cortex M3 mcu, plenty of timers/interupts, RTC, backup battery and memory, sleep modes.

 bricking it is hard. frying voltage regulators with over voltage is annoyingly easy. anything above 12V is going to cook them. fortunatly they are easy to replace.

online compiler in c, pretty extensive libarys, including file saving system.

I like it. ony slightly :P I have two, and use them. they are pretty easy to use. easy as pie to configure for talking to the pc, download the settings file, plug in, and play. works like a usb memory stick as far as teh pc is concerned.

nice little capable board, but, where is the FPGA chip? mmm no!! I need an FPGA for signal processing and implementing filters and video algorithms.

thank you anyways

FPGA? find a board and use the MBED to run it?

sorry, I have never played with FPGA.
