Title: vidor's Mini PCI express -> edge connector -> jumper pins
Post by: aster94 on Mar 05, 2019, 12:51 am
since the vidor has not a lot of usable pins a expansion tool to convert the Mini PCIe port to usable pins could be made. The connector should have 52 pins (i guess that a few of them are 3.3v and gnd) but anyway a lot of usable pins directly from the FPGA
...before it appear on aliexpress

I googled vidor. It's a city in Texas. Of course it doesn't have a lot of usable pins.

Some clue as to what you are talking about would be useful.

Paul, we are in the arduino forum, have you tried to google "arduino" + "vidor"?  :smiley-razz:
and please don't say me that googling "arduino" you found a bar in Ivrea (this would be understood only by people who knows the history of arduino  8) )

I shouldn't need to. YOU should post a link to the specific page you think I should find.

Well played LOL

Excuse Paul...Some of us don't get around the products too much...Been caught out myself.

A VIDOR expansion board would be a good idea but it's would be so easy I don't think there would be too much money in it.

yep, probably it shouldn't cost more then 5-6€ to the end user, and also I am not sure on how many pieces of the vidor4000 has been sold

the board, by the way, is this one: https://www.arduino.cc/en/Guide/MKRVidor4000
