FPGA Prototyping Board

FPGA comes to life

FPGA Prototyping Board
This prototyping board provides an environment for the FPGA module that enables it to do something useful. That gives you an opportunity to discover the capabilities of our FPGA module for yourself. Naturally, you don’t have to make this voyage of discovery all on your own – a course in the form of a series of instalments will guide you on your way.

Gerber file

CAM/CAD data for the PCB referred to in this article is available as a Gerber file. Elektor GREEN and GOLD members can exclusively download these files for free as part of their membership. Gerber files allow a PCB to be produced on an appropriate device available locally, or through an online PCB manufacturing service.

Elektor recommends its business partner Eurocircuits as the company of choice for its own prototypes and volume production in selected cases.

Extra info / Update
A small number of FPGA Prototyping Boards from the first
production batch have six SMD electrolytic capacitors fitted
the wrong way around: C5, C6, C7, C13, C14 and C15.
The dash on these capacitors has to be at the side of the
connectors. If they are at the side of the LCD, there are two

1. you remove the capacitors and refit them with the correct

2. you return the FPGA board to us and we will do the
above free of charge.

In any case, do not apply the supply voltage before it has
been ascertained that the six electrolytics are fitted the right
way around.
