We thought of making one kind of new SBC where we make combined board
with powerful processor and some nice FPGA chipset!
We technically researched thru every SBC with FPGA or raspberry pi hats
first and found the useful cases. Our idea was to make something under
119$ and still have powerful features .We found a right processor and
FPGA later-words and it’s also in price range.
We already have spent 6 months of our efforts in making this board ( 3
person full time ) and will spend more. Most of you have much higher
experience then us, so here is what we need from you, and it's about
suggestions! ( Bad or good i am open to all ).
It has the powerful six core ARM processor.
- 4GB LPDDR4 RAM connected to processor.
- All the other peripheral features kind of raspberry pi.
- We have type c 3.0 output connected to processor.
- WiFi Dual mode and BLE5,
- One USB 3.0,
- Gigabit Ethernet,
- Headphone and MIC both
MIPI DPI , MIPI CSI-2 , All connected to processors!
Now here comes an interesting part, the FPGA is directly connected to
processor via 2 fast transmission channel ( upto 1Gb/s ) and other small
channels ( UART, I2C, SPI, GPIOs )
FPGA have two options 85K Le and 120K Les.
- We have 20 channel LVDS TX and 20 Channel LVDS RX ( They have hardened
stack in FPGA, so it do not consumes any of your logic gates if you want
to use it ) connected to FPGA output in board with new kind of
- MIPI CSI-2 TX and RX connected to FPGA ( For video based applications
, hardened in FPGA do not consumes any of your logic gates).
- 20 GPIO in pin headers ( Including Modbus ).
- 512MB DDR3 RAM
This board we want to dedicate to a FPGA community, that we all are
waiting for somehow!
We still are in making of this board, so give us a best ideas how you
want to be turn around, here is a first glimpse of it, hope you all will
