In case I haven’t mentioned it before, if you are interested in working with the Xilinx Spartan-3E FPGAs, check out the Papilio One boards. Do a web search for them. There are two boards, a 500k 3E and a 250k 3E. Sparkfun has the 500k board for $65. Both are available from Gadget Factory, along with a bunch of adaptor boards, called wings. The 250k board costs $49.
They do NOT have a fast host port onboard, so they cannot be used directly with the Charleston receiver. I’m thinking of hooking a generic Cypress FX2 USB interface to one of these boards to make a less-expensive host interface with the Charleston receiver. Anyone interested in helping out?
