Papilio Hardware Index

Have you been thinking about jumping into FPGA development but are not sure how to get started? Well, take a look at the Papilio - an Open Source FPGA board with everything you need to get started at a low price. With a friendly and supportive community(approve sites), free VHDL eBook, Open Source Arduino compatible Soft Processors, and plenty of code examples you will have all the resources needed to get you started on the FPGA path. It's never been easier to jump into the wide-open world of FPGA development!

Papilio DUO Hardware Guide?

The Papilio DUO has an FPGA on the top and the same chip that is used in the Arduino Leonardo (ATmega32U4) on the bottom. It's like having an Arduino with a full circuit laboratory connected to it! For example, you can draw circuits to move pins, connect extra serial ports, or connect a bitcoin miner to the Arduino-Compatible chip. Just plug it into your computer using a USB cable, download our software and start drawing your own circuits. Attach:pduo.jpg Δ?

  • Xilinx Spartan 6 LX9 FPGA
  • 512KB or 2MB SRAM
  • AVR ATmega32U4 chip that is a derivative of the Arduino Leonardo design.
  • High efficiency LTC3419 Switching Voltage Regulator
  • 64Mbit Macronix MX25L6445 SPI Flash
  • 54 I/O pins arranged in an Arduino-Compatible Mega Form Factor
  • High Speed USB port for programming and communication
  • ZPUino Soft Processor



Papilio One Hardware Guide?

The Papilio One is a powerful, open-source, expandable development board perfect for the design and prototyping of your unique ideas. You can customize the capabilities of the Papilio with snap-on modular expansions called Wings (similar to Arduino shields) which provide added functionality to the board, and simultaneously expand the creative possibilities!

At its heart, the Papilio One has a Xilinx Spartan 3E FPGA chip, providing a plentiful amount of digital logic to quickly get your prototyping off the ground. In addition, you can code for the FPGA using established development tools, or you can use Gadget Factory's custom Arduino IDE to easily write Arduino code and upload it to the AVR8 soft processor!

Papilio Pro Hardware Guide?

The Open Source Papilio Pro LX9? FPGA board is a powerful and flexible platform that provides the core for exciting projects such as the RetroCade Synth(approve sites) and the Papilio Arcade. It acts as the empty canvas that classic audio chips and arcade motherboards can be recreated on. Its flexible nature means that it can be re-used with future Papilio projects by simply purchasing the MegaWing portion of a project. Attach:ppro.jpg Δ?
