Lets’ gather together our thoughts for the FPGA Alpha, remember it has to be flexible, but not necessarily a do everything board.
JTAG? (different form factor RJ-45? RJ-11 for smaller size)
SMB – (MCX) x 4 connected by jumpers to various fpga pins perhaps that way RF connector can be connected to carefully but exchangable defined pins, clks, mults etc?
Prototyping area near front right.
Board to Board dedicated (define)
FPGA to Backplane (define & type per Lyle’s and Phil’s suggestion)
Let’s get a flexible plan.
