FPGA Prototyping Board
FPGA comes to life
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.
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
