$349, Crowd-Sourced, FPGA-based Numato Opsis Video Dev Platform fully funded. There’s still 35 days to get on board

Two weeks ago, I wrote about the $349, Crowd-Sourced, FPGA-based Numato Opsis Video Dev Platform on the CrowdSupply crowdsourcing site (see “Cool, $349, Open-Source, FPGA-based Video Dev Platform supports HDMI, VideoPort, USB, Ethernet”) and stated “…based on my experience with Xcell Daily’s readers, I expect the project will be fully funded by the end of this week.” Sure enough, this very cool video project based on a Xilinx Spartan-6 LX45T FPGA is 120% funded with 35 days left in the funding period. So if you need HDMI in/out, DisplayPort in/out, USB, and Gigabit Ethernet ports for your next project—not to mention a pretty darn good, video-capable FPGA—you still have five weeks to pledge your $349 for one of these bad boys.

Thanks for the support sleibso!


The complete design for the board is avaliable, published on GitHub right now under a CC-BY-SA license too!
