NEW PRODUCT – Mojo FPGA Development Board – Want to dip your toes into the world of FPGA design – but a little scared of the complexity? You may find a friend in the Mojo. The Mojo is a FPGA development board that is designed from the ground up to be easy to use.
The entire goal of the Mojo is to make getting started with FPGA and digital design as easy as possible. To go along with the dev board there is a set of tutorials to help you get started and expand your knowledge of digital design.
The Mojo features include:
Spartan 6 XC6SLX9 FPGA
84 digital IO pins
8 analog inputs
8 general purpose LEDs
1 reset button
1 LED to show when the FPGA is correctly configured
On board voltage regulation that can handle 4.8V – 12V
A microcontroller (ATmega32U4) used for configuring the FPGA, USB communications, and reading the analog pins
On board flash memory to store the FPGA configuration file
The Mojo is made in the USA.
The V3 version of the Mojo features a more robust USB port than the V2, minor cosmetic changes, and an upgraded microcontroller with extra memory for adding your own code.
Adafruit has had paid day off for voting for our team for years, if you need help getting that going for your organization, let us know – we can share how and why we did this as well as the good results. Here are some resources for voting by mail, voting in person, and some NY resources for our NY based teams as well. If there are additional resources to add, please let us know – adafruit.com/vote
Stop breadboarding and soldering – start making immediately! Adafruit’s Circuit Playground is jam-packed with LEDs, sensors, buttons, alligator clip pads and more. Build projects with Circuit Playground in a few minutes with the drag-and-drop MakeCode programming site, learn computer science using the CS Discoveries class on code.org, jump into CircuitPython to learn Python and hardware together, TinyGO, or even use the Arduino IDE. Circuit Playground Express is the newest and best Circuit Playground board, with support for CircuitPython, MakeCode, and Arduino. It has a powerful processor, 10 NeoPixels, mini speaker, InfraRed receive and transmit, two buttons, a switch, 14 alligator clip pads, and lots of sensors: capacitive touch, IR proximity, temperature, light, motion and sound. A whole wide world of electronics and coding is waiting for you, and it fits in the palm of your hand.
