Title: simultaneously running multiple sketches..with 1 board
Post by: eddiea6987 on Sep 14, 2011, 07:52 am
what woulld you do with a board that could emulate a cpu, or a microcontroller or a vga graphics controller or digital synthesizer ...all at the same time?
with 54 i/o pins / 16 analog inputs ?

i was browsing kickstarters and came across a board like so


...its based off of a "multicore capable" Xilinx Spartan FPGA (Field Programmable Gate Array) ..w/e all that means :)

Nothing -  I don't have that much time in a day 8)

"54 i/o pins / 16 analog inputs" sounds like a crippled ATMega in terms of I/O ...
