Nexys-2 , Xilinx Spartan-3E FPGA, 500K or 1200K gate

The Nexys-2 is a powerful digital system design platform built around a Xilinx Spartan 3E FPGA. With 16Mbytes of fast SDRAM and 16Mbytes of Flash ROM, the Nexys-2 is ideally suited to embedded processors like Xilinx's 32-bit RISC Microblaze™. The on-board high-speed USB2 port, together with a collection of I/O devices, data ports, and expansion connectors, allow a wide range of designs to be completed without the need for any additional components.

Now everyone can own a powerful, state-of-the-art development system for less than the cost of a textbook!
