Advantages A very low price point for an introductory FPGA board. Other boards are closer to $60, which is too much of a price barrier for beginners. We are closer to $10. Designed for rapid prototyping – with a breadboard-compatible design Only uses free or open source design toolsSupported by numerous examples and guides from a DIY communityFPGAs fundamentally allow for ongoing, and adaptable hardware configurations and control, even once embeddedUnlike other FPGAs, this model does not lose is configuration on reboot FPGAs, or Field Programmable Gate Arrays allow a designer to program logic circuits at the hardware level, on the fly. This can greatly speed up processing or allow for massively parallel operations. FGPAs are described as a system designers ‘magical black bag’, in that they can be dynamically reconfigured to do any arbitrary type of digital processing. Sadly, FPGAs are a mysterious topic to most DIY tech-types. Specifically, the barriers to entry are the large learning curves, high costs, and limited open source examples.Our Fipsy FPGA device and learning material solves this issue head on!Background In 2016, our group was shocked to find that no cheap alternatives have existed since 2015 when the DISPY FPGA project was a finalist for 2015 Product of the Year. This project was inactive, so we revived it under the banner ‘Fipsy’. Now we have created numerous instruction guides, sample projects, and a commitment to on-going support and production. We are building exactly the board we wished we had when we were learning about FPGAs. The Kickstarter will launch a supply of DIY-friendly FPGA boards. Funding will be reinvested in purchasing additional boards so that cheap FPGAs will be available to all future makers. MoCo Makers supports the learning process with guides published on our website. The Fipsy Development Timeline What will we do with the money?With a the funds from this Kickstarter we will place a first batch order of Fipsy FGPAs. A successful campaign will allow future batches to be ordered as well, meaning we will have a perpetual stock of FPGAs to supply the hobbyist market! We have a working prototype sponsored by our manufacturer, Allied Component Works. Revenues will go towards the purchase of further batch orders, so that Makers everywhere can leverage the enormous benefits of FPGAs..Imagine the possibilities FPGAs can offer: Learn about FGPA/systems designI/O Port extenderGlue between different embedded systemsSoftware-based circuit conﬁgurationSimpliﬁed prototype boards, e.g. to wire up microcontrollers and periphery electronics on the ﬂyDigital bus controllerPWM controller, e.g. for huge LED panelsFrequency generationReal-time modification of signal streams, such as HDMICreate neural network analogues Learning about FPGAsAll you need is the FGPA device, and you can learn from our guides Wiki ChatroomSet-up guide and instructionsExternal Learning ReferencesGet the Fipsy device, and you can apply an amazing and powerful electronics tool to your future projects! ...
