Friday Product Post: Make Gold of That

Happy new year and decade, everyone! We're ringing in the new year with six new FPGA products from Alchitry: two FPGA development boards, three expansion boards, dubbed "Elements," and a set of headers for them. Let's jump in and take a closer look at all our our new products for the week.

Quite possibly the Philosopher's Stone of FPGAs!

Alchitry Cu FPGA Development Board (Lattice iCE40 HX)

15 available DEV-15848

The Alchitry Cu (Copper) is a "lighter" FPGA version than the Alchitry Au but still offers something completely unique.

$49.95

The Alchitry Au is the "gold" standard for FPGA development boards, and one of the strongest boards of its type on the market. FPGAs, or Field-Programmable Gate Arrays, are an advanced development board type for engineers and hobbyists alike to experience the next step in programming with electronics. The Au continues the trend of more affordable and increasingly powerful FPGA boards arriving each year. This board is a fantastic starting point into the world of FPGAs and the heart of your next project.

If you don't need a lot of power to start your FPGA adventure, or are looking for a more economical option, the Alchitry Cu FPGA Development Board might be the perfect option for you! The Alchitry Cu (Copper) is a "lighter" FPGA version than the Alchitry Au but still offers something completely unique.

Alchitry Br Prototype Element Board (No Top Connectors)

21 available DEV-15873

The Alchitry Br Element Board without top connectors is a prototyping periphery for the Au or Cu FPGA Development Boards.

$9.95

The Alchitry Br Element Board is a prototyping periphery for the Au or Cu FPGA boards. The Br breaks out all the signals on the four headers running from your Au or Cu, and has a large prototyping area with a 0.1" pin grid for custom circuits. A version without top connectors is also available!


Alchitry Br Female Header Set

Alchitry Br Female Header Set

In stock PRT-15874

This is a set of four 2x18 female headers with 0.1"-spaced pins for the Alchitry Br Prototype Element Boards.

$3.95

Last up this week is a set of four 2x18 female headers with 0.1"-spaced pins for the Alchitry Br Prototype Element Boards. These line up exactly with all the broken out holes in the Br prototyping area, making it easy to jump wires to a breadboard or other temporary connections.


That's it for this week! Happy 2020, everyone! As always, we can't wait to see what you make! Shoot us a tweet @sparkfun, or let us know on Instagram or Facebook. We’d love to see what projects you’ve made!
