LOGi Project Contest - Win a board to create your Project
The LOGi FPGA boards were designed with the goal of unifying the use of existing hardware modules and embedded development platforms. The use of Arduino shields, PMOD modules FPGA technology in conjunction with high performance CPU technology creates a framework for a wide array of electronics projects that can be created in a seamless plug and play manner. What projects can you work-up with your imagination? Submit your project idea and plans for implementing the project and you may receive a complementary LOGi board of your choice to create your project!
Maximum Interfacing Compatibility with existing modules
The LOGi FPGA boards were designed to allow as much plug-and-play expansion to existing available hardware as possible by using widely available and low-cost, off-the-shelf hardware.PMODs andArduino Shields were chosen to be used as a standard interface, based on their wide market usage, availability, and cost. There are currently 59 PMODs and 281 Arduino Shields available that could be used to add direct functionality to the LOGi-Pi. Additionally, high bandwidth SATA interconnects implementing impedance controlled LVDS lines can be interfaced. By using LVDS, such applications as HDMI, SDR, LVDS camera interfaces, and other high bandwidth applications can easily be developed on the LOGi-Pi. All applications are intended to be implemented without needing soldering, jumper wires, or “perf” board expansion as is generally required to interface to many existing FPGA boards.
High Performance Applications
The LOGi FPGA boards were designed to allow implementation of many high performance applications in a straightforward manner. Many popular applications are best served by the processing capabilities of an FPGA, including SDR (Software defined Radio), quad-copter control, computer vision, and bitcoin mining. Applications have been created for the LOGi FPGA boards that implement machine vision, andbitcoin mining, and autonomous vehicle controller using GPS, 9-axis IMU, WIFI, and machine vision to run blog detection and color detection algorithms. These applications are representative of a few of the applications that can be developed by using off-the-shelf components and integrating high performance CPU and FPGA technology.
So what kind of a project can you think of that uses some combination of Arduino shields, PMOD modules with the LOGi FPGA boards and Raspberry Pi or Beaglebone? Submit your project ideas and plans for implementing the project and the LOGi-Team will review your submission. If your project is selected as a winner, you will receive a complementary LOGi board of choice to create your project.
All that we ask is that you keep your project open source so others can learn and enjoy from you ingenious project!
