Im trying to find a nice and simple FPGA board without having LEDs and digital displays and other stuff I dont need. Im just looking for a board with just the essentials for an fpga to run and just some pinouts. I know some of the prototyping boards have some things like this, but they're generaly lower end FPGAs. Im looking for atleast a virtex-II. Anyone know of any good companys that provide something like this without all the bells and whistles?
Im trying to look for something a little higher end then a spartan-3, mabye a virtex-2 pro and above, something that can run at atleast
200MHz. This isnt for any classes, its for a bigger project. I have the spartan-3 starter board at the moment but its clock only rus to
50Mhz. Everyhting Ive seen for far has either a pci bus or some other bus on it which I wont be needing. The spartan 3 starter kit is basicly somehting I would like, but instead of a spartan-3, a virtex
2-pro or better. Ive looked around quite a bit and just ended up finding stuff over 1,000 atleast but has a lot of stuff that I dont want on it. I would like to make the connections myself since I will be making my own daughterboard to connect to it with some ADCs and an ethernet port. Ill keep looking around tho, but mainly Im curious if these 1000+ ranges are typical for basic FPGAs. Since the starter kit was pretty basic and only cost 100, I was thinking something that I would need would be under 1000. The general specs im looking for is something around 800k-1mil gates, with a pretty decent amount of ram. Ill continue to search for something, and Ill post back with what I find for references for other people if they need this info.
