Many FPGA development projects end up as custom-designed boards. During the design and development phase, however, using an off-the-shelf development board facilitates hardware-in-the-loop verification and provides for significant risk mitigation of the more challenging technical aspects associated with getting the system up and running.
We can use these boards for a number of different end applications as such no one board is the magic bullet that enables us to use it for all applications. Each time we come to select a board for our project we must consider not only the performance of the FPGA or as you will see SoC mounted on it but also the types and size of memories available, the interfaces available, such as USB, EIA232, GigE, among others, along with user-accessible IO allowing integration with elements of the application.
Let us take a look at 10 interesting boards that can be used across a number of different applications.
