Hi, I have just began working with FPGA devices and have been trying to apply them in real-world situations. For my first project I need a very small, relatively inexpensive "bare-bones" type FPGA board. But I have been having difficulty finding one. I just need one with the following features (please tell me if I'm missing anything vital):
-FPGA device with at least 15,000 usable gates (more would be preferable). I only need a small number of user IOs, so that shouldn't be an issue at all. The device doesn't need to be very fast either, as it will be running only at around 4 MHz.
-clock with only around 4 MHz frequency range... higher isn't a problem however.
-in-circuit reprogrammable non-volatile memory device for storing the FPGA's configuration data.
-The most important thing is that it all fits within a 40 mm x 30 mm x10 mm volume or less.
More features than this obviously isn't a problem, provided it doesn't make the board larger than the specified volume. Do boards like this exist for purchase, or will I have to build it myself? I am inexperienced in the area of designing PCBs so I would prefer to buy it already made. Is it even possible to build this device in such a small volume? Thanks for your help.
Sincerely, Darien A. Gothia
