Re: [Xylo-SDR] Aria Case... DIN41612 Backplane...


Great! Yes! I guess we were all in goosestep thought .... Blocked!

This keeps getting better and better! Still need an high speed buss standard
coming off somewhere on the "Leon<->Lion FPGA" card. Must be accessible at
high speeds on a quiet LVDS buss standard. Anyone take a look at the AMP TP
and shielded stuff? I am still hoping that Phil doesn't need to put another
FPGA and flash chip on his "Phil<->HPSDR" board! I don't think the
"Phil<->Bill USA" board is going to need it.

All we need for that is a daughter board, as I was intending to add. That 
may be used for things like prototyping, adding RF connectors, etc. leaving 
the main board just for digital stuff connected directly to the FPGA.
