Default need an fpga board

Hi .
Me along with my Professor at Clemson University are planning to
have a new FPGA board for implementing sensor networks with FPGA's
...So can anyone suggest me that we could buy and then implement our
designs on that ..I prefer to have Xilinx FPGA's because I am more
familiar with Modelsim and ISE ...

Suzaku is pretty cute:

Tiny form factor, ethernet connectivity, reasonable number of free user IO.

Best of all, it's preconfigured with microblaze uClinux ;-)

Cheers,

John

A couple of places that I've used:

http://www.digilentinc.com/

and there's a long list of others at:

What's a "sensor network"?

How much are you willing to spend? How much network bandwidth
do you need? How big/fast of an FPGA do you need? Need memory?
CPU?


The Xilinx Spartan3 starter kit is a nice package for $100.

It doesn't have an Ethernet, but you can add one for $60.
(Look at the Digilent web site.) It does have a RS232 port.

For $60 you can get an Analog card with an 8 bit A/D and
2 channels of 8 bit D/A and a couple of op-amps and
a breadboard area.


The FAQ has a list of FPGA boards. Worth browsing to get a calibration
on what's available.
