Xilinx Spartan 3e Starter Kit


  • Xilinx Spartan 3E (500K gate device),
  • Onboard JTAG programmer
  • 50Mhz on board clock,
  • 128Mbit flash,
  • 16Mbit SPI flash,
  • 64Mbyte DDR SDRAM,
  • 4 channel 12 bit DAC
  • Dual channel 14 bit ADC.
  • 20 by 2 LCD
  • Rotary Encoder
  • 8 switches
  • 8 LEDs
  • Ethernet Connector
  • VGA connecor
  • two RS232 connectors

Of particular interest to people interested in building synthesisers with FPGAs is the fact that this board has everything on you need, a BIG FPGA, fast clock, lots of memory and most importantly a DAC!

Most people on the list seem to have one of these boards to hand, so I'd expect that this will quickly become the standard weapon of choice for projects/code contained in this wiki. Though I'll try to keep it as open and free from constraints as possible.
