I'm a bit of an electronics-education evangelist. After all, Education is how we learn about the world. Electronics make the world better. Engineers change the world. So more engineers that know how to design and create electronics? That's the kind of world I want to help create.

Since our release of the NetFPGA-SUME at the beginning of this year, this board has gotten a lot of attention. It’s easy to see why, after all, it’s powered by the Xilinx Virtex-7 690T FPGA, a behemoth of a chip with over half a million logic cells and is perfect for applications like cyber security, imaging, and high-throughput data (as a point of reference, the next closest competitor to this processor available for purchase is the Altera Stratix V.) And now it’s on sale!

Our new product, the Nexys4 DDR, is now available for sale! We have been anxiously awaiting this board’s release ever since we received an end-of-life notice from Micron (our memory provider) about cellular RAM that we had been using on all of our Nexys-class products. Rather than strip features off the current Nexys4, we decided to evolve the product line to accept DDR Memory. Check it out now!

WS2812 LEDs are particularly popular in microcontroller projects. It make a lot of sense. Your first project with a microcontroller is “Blink LED”, so it only makes sense to blink LEDs in a more interesting way!
