Re: [Xylo-SDR] Yet another Xylo like board

You may want to look my post from Friday Xilinx has a much better deal, more stuff on their board, and a CPL development kit added in, with cables, power supplies, and software for $99

By the way Xilinx has their development software available for Linux also, and is free as in free beer. Altera also has their software available for Linux, but I have not checked to see if it's free.

Right now I'm in the process of switching some of my PC's to Linux, I have two PC's with dual boot, XP and Suse 10.0 Linux. I've been playing with Puppy Linux and I'm a pretty happy puppy myself, it's a live CD but it moves everything to RAM and it's lightning quick, it writes your data to a ram stick or the CD itself at shutdown so you can take your data with you.

I've downloaded the Xilinx development software for Linux and I will be installing it tomorrow.

I just found another company which offers Xylinx based board for FPGA..


Xylinx also gives the free (as in gratis, not in freedom) webpack
which is also available for GNU/Linux.
