DIPSY from 2015 when it was breaking news. Not sure how I missed it,
but this is a very small unit with a very tiny FPGA (likely the smallest
FPGA package ever - 2 mm^2) and an LDO for the core power and of course
I found a github page with various design details and an Indiegogo page.
There I found a video from Lattice that says this unit along with a
programming board (over 100 times larger) is sold for $5. It looks like
they received 140% of their goal. What I don't find is any way to buy
this. The video says to go to the lattice web site for more info, but I
don't find even a mention there.
Maybe that's why I missed this unit. It may have sold a few copies to
the original contributors and then been dropped.
Anyone know anything about this? The guy behind it is Antti Lukats who
has been seen here from time to time.
