This could be interesting …

I ordered OpenCores latest low-end FPGA development board to try out the OpenRISC 1200.

My first job involved FPGAs, back in the early 90s. The Altera FPGA that I routinely used then had 32 logic units and cost around £100 each. We also used another Altera part that had (IIRC) 512 LUs and cost in the region of £1000. The one I just ordered has over 22,000 LUs.

The total cost including tax and delivery was ~ £150 / €180.
(Whether this will make it through UK customs is interesting: tax has supposedly been paid already)

I’ll let you know how it goes.
