miniSpartan6 is an Opens Source FPGA starter kit that I designed and built based on other open source kits such as Papillion Pro and XuLA2.
It is designed around Spartan 6 chip from Xilinx and it has on board JTAG programmer based on FT2232D from FTDI.
- Spartan 6 LX9
- SDRAM of 32 M Byte
- SPI Flash of 8 M Bit
- 36 I/O
- USB to UART link
- USB JTAG on board
- 8 LEDS connected to the FPGA
- 4 DIP switches connected to the FPGA
The board size is 1.6″ x 2.9″.
The miniSpartan6 is built to combine the advantages of both Papillion Pro and XuLA2. It is breadboard friendly like XuLA2 and it has the features of Papillion Pro.
