Mercury - Xilinx Spartan-3A FPGA development board — MicroNova. Digilent Inc. - Digital Design Engineer's Source. The Atlys circuit board is a complete, ready-to-use digital circuit development platform based on a Xilinx Spartan 6 LX45 FPGA.

The on-board collection of high-end peripherals, including Gbit Ethernet, HDMI Video, 128Mbyte DDR2 memory array, audio and USB ports make the Atlys board an ideal host for complete digital systems built around embedded processors like Xilinx’s MicroBlaze. Atlys is fully compatible with all Xilinx CAD tools, including ChipScope, EDK, and the free WebPack, so designs can be completed with no extra costs. The Spartan-6 LX45 is optimized for high-performance logic and offers: 6,822 slices each containing four 6-input LUTs and eight flip-flops 2.1Mbits of fast block RAM 4 clock tiles (8 DCMs & 4 PLLs) 6 phased-locked loops 58 DSP slices 500MHz+ clock speeds The Atlys board can be communicated with and programmed by the Digilent Adept software.

In addition, the board can be programmed by Xilinx's iMPACT using the Digilent Plugin for Xilinx Tools. Joel's Compendium of Total Knowledge. I bought Avnet's $49 Spartan 3A development board but it was discontinued not long afterward - right about the time when I decided I needed a few dozen more.

I've since done some extensive research (thanks, Google!) To find a comparable thrifty thrill. When choosing a development board, consider what you get with it and what you want to use it for. FPGAs are ideal for use with high speed peripherals, and in general it is much easier to buy a board that contains the part you want, rather than trying to add one on later (and inevitably giving up and upgrading to a more capable board). Examples of things you might want, and are quite difficult to add yourself: Gigabit Ethernet HDMI/DVI PCI/PCI Express External non-serial memory (DDR/Flash etc.) Things that are relatively easy to add, and are not so much of a big deal to wire up yourself.
