The TinyFPGA Computer Project Board is a through-hole FPGA kit you assemble yourself. It has all of the main components you need to implement a small 8-bit retro computer.
At the heart of the motherboard is the TinyFPGA B2. A discounted TinyFPGA B2 is included in the kit by default. If you already have a B2 you can remove it from the kit using the options on the right. The TinyFPGA B2 module itself has the following features:
There are a lot of open-source retro-computer projects available online, but they have not yet been ported to this project board. There are a lot of opportunities for porting existing retro-computers and all new computers using this board.
Implementing a working computer from the ground-up or an existing project is one of the most rewarding and entertaining challenges for FPGAs. The end result of your labor is a computer you can interact with via monitor and keyboard. If you've implemented a classic 8-bit computer then you'll be able to run that old software on a piece of hardware you built. It's a lot of fun and I wanted to bring all the hardware components together in a kit to help make it happen.
An FPGA computer motherboard you can assemble yourself is a rare animal. In addition to being an assemble-it-yourself kit, the motherboard is low-cost compared to other FPGA computer boards, fits in a standard Pico-ITX compatible case, and the TinyFPGA B2 that powers it can be programmed using the open source IceStorm project.
