1 pointHi Ben, yes the Papilio boards are a great choice. One of these boards was my very first FPGA board, and I have had lots of fun and frustration. Iniitially using the Papilio One didn't go well, but I managed to work through the various problems and finally was able to start writing my own code. Still no idea what has happened to jack :-(
1 pointI'm a new Papilio Pro user (bought one a few months ago from Seeed Studio) and have bought a few wings recently from the GadgetFactory store. I think the Papilio boards would still be great for beginners but unfortunately they're not for sale anymore. It's a shame so much work went into this product and it's seemingly abandoned. I also wonder what happened to Jack Gassett. I hope he's well!
