@Nusim

If you could also sell a pre-programmed FPGA to go with the board then I'd probably be interested. Where do I find the BOM.

Any chance for a pre assembled one? That i would definitely buy, as i dont have the skills required for assembling my own.

FPGAs are field programmable and almost all need to be programmed every time the device powers up. It's the PIC micro you want to have preprogrammed. It reads the FPGA bit-file from an SD-card and programs the FPGA.

Nice, but that FPGA will be a pain in the 4ss to solder.

Already ordered one! Where can I get a BOM from, to start RSing?

Let me get mine up and running first and if I do it successfully, maybe!

And where are the other parts of the board (chips..etc)?

i guess thats only the naked "pcb", right?

Ah that should be fine then as my brother, who'd be doing the build, should have access to a PIC programmer.

@Tomppeli

Only five boards were listed and they've all been sold, hence the message you're getting. Hopefully list some more in the coming days.

It's incredibly easy to program a PIC for home use anyway, using hardly any components. I haven't tried the 18xxx line but the 16F84 can be programmed with a just a 5V supply, a 12V supply and a single resistor. I've made a tiny programmer getting data and +12V from the serial port and +5V from a USB port. Dodgy but works although it shouldn't ever be used for anything that is meant to be sold, you're meant to program PIC for real use with a programmer that can verify at many voltages across the supported spectrum.

Figures... as soon as I buy one, the price drops by half. I wish I could tell those looking for a populated board that I could help out, but I just don't have the time to build more.

Too bad I don't have the soldering skills needed :(

How much will costs the missing parts?
