The krtkl Snickerdoodle dev board—“A palm-sized, reconfigurable Linux computer that connects to the real world: ARM + FPGA + Wi-Fi + Bluetooth + 154 I/O”—is a very successful, low-cost dev board for the Xilinx Zynq-7000 SoC that appeared a while ago on the CrowdSupply crowd-funding site. The $195 Snickerdoodle Black version, due to ship this month, is krtkl’s amped-up version with Dual-band 2.4GHz 802.11n 2x2 MIMO Wi-Fi, Bluetooth Classic & BLE, and a copperHead heat sink. Now there’s one more component that will ship with the Snickerdoodle Black board and it’s a big one: a license for the Xilinx SDSoC Design Environment that allows you to develop hardware-accelerated embedded designs for the Zynq SoC using C, C++, or SystemC. (See the announcement here.)


It all ships to you for $195.


Considering that the usual price for SDSoC is $995, that’s a real bargain.
