We’ve seen FPGA dev boards out the wazoo—even some complying with the present pattern of putting an FPGA as well as an ARM processor on a single board. Take one great concept as well as mix it in with a few million Linux/ARM boards already stacking up on workbenches the world over as well as you get LOGi: an FPGA developed to plug into the Raspberry Pi as well as BeagleBone.

Both the Raspberry Pi as well as BeagleBone versions of the LOGi function a Spartan 6 FPGA with 9152 logic cells, 16 DSP Slices, 576KB of RAM, as well as 96 I/O Pins. There’s likewise 256 MB of SDRAM as well as a SATA connector. The Kickstarter has a few demos for this board, namely a device vision, Bitcoin mining (though don’t expect this board to make return-on-investment with mining), as well as an autonomous car manage demo. The LOGi’s hardware is similar to the Papilio Pro, so prospective jobs may include generating NTSC video, adding a VGA out, as well as a few retrocomputer emulations through OpenCores.

For what this Kickstarter asks for the Pi or ‘Bone version of the LOGi—$89 USD for either—you’ll get a surprisingly capable FPGA dev board that’s a bit less expensive than similar offerings. Sure, you won’t save any type of money purchasing a Pi as well as a LOGi, however if you have a few Raspberries lying about, you might do much worse for a starter FPGA board.

Thanks [hamster] for sending this in.
