Mojo (n) is defined as “the art or practice of casting magic spells.” With the Mojo v3 FPGA you will definitely discover what kind of magic you can make! This development board is a field-programmable gate array (FPGA), meaning that you (yes, you) get the pleasure of configuring the digital circuits on the Mojo v3 to your own specifications! What separates this FPGA from the others is ease of use and the thorough tutorials that Embedded Micro provide (which can be found below). The goal of the Mojo v3 is to get you up and running with a FPGA as easily as possible
The Mojo v3 FPGA uses the lo..
The Mojo Clock/Visualizer Shield is a simple add-on for the Mojo v3 FPGA development platform. This shield’s primary purpose is to give you with a great way to get started with FPGA (Field-Programmable Gate Array) development by providing an easy to set up real-time clock and audio visualizer. This shield is equipped with two 8x8 RGB LED matrices with full 24 bit color that connect directly to the Mojo’s I/O pins and a microphone and light sensor that connect to the Mojo’s analog inputs.
With the example design listed below this shield will quickly become a basic real-time clock. Setting the..
The Arcade MegaWing is an opensource add-on for the Papilio FPGA development platform that gives you all the hardware you’ll need to play and create great retro video games. Like any other MegaWing, this Arcade add-on can easily slide into your Papilio Pro and allow you to start developing! The Arcade MegaWingis a great addition to your Papilio Pro and an inexpensive way to help you learn more about FPGA.
MegaWings are FPGA add-ons that plug straight into a Papilio Pro board and provide everything needed for a specific application in one convenient PCB. Since this is a Arcade MegaWing it won..
The LogicStart is an open source MegaWing for the Papilio Pro development platform that provides you with everything you need to get started with VHDL (VHSIC [Very-High-Speed Integrated Circuits] Hardware Description Language) and FPGA development. This is the perfect MegaWing if you are just starting out with FPGA. Once paired with your Papilio board, the Logic Start provides you with many ammenities for experimenting and learning about FPGA development!

The Papilio Audio Wing is a fast and easy way to snap into audio capability. Plug the Audio Wing into your Papilio FPGA board and you’ll have two stereo channels on two 1/8" jacks. The detect pins are also broken out so that your Papilio board can sense when an audio connector is plugged in.
Note: This product is a collaboration with Jack Gasset. A portion of each sale goes back to him for product support and continued development.
Delta-Sigma ready for high quality stereo output.
Two stereo channels with left and right outputs.
Two 1/8" stereo jacks.
Low pass RC filter.
BLEDWing, besides being an excellent name for a goth rock band, is also an excellent way to explore simple input and output for your Papilio FPGA development board. Simply snap the B/LED Wing into your Papilio board and you’ve got four LEDs and four push-buttons at your disposal!
Buttons and LEDs represent the most basic form of digital I/O and make a great starting point for debugging an application, especially when you’re just learning how to program for FPGAs.
Note: This product is a collaboration with Jack Gasset. A portion of each sale goes back to him for product support and continued..
Are you interested in FPGA development but don’t know where to start? Why not give Papilio a try? The Papilio One is an open-source development platform based on the capable Xilinx Spartan 3E FPGA. While FPGA devices are massively powerful and configurable, they haven’t always been the easiest to develop. Papilio attempts to remedy this situation by following the lead of popular microprocessor development tools like Arduino. The Papilio One can be expanded by the use of “wings” which are stackable add-on modules, similar to Arduino shields.

If you’ve found an interest in FPGA programming and loved the Papilio One 500K, you should definetly try the new Papilio Pro LX9! The Papilio Pro is an open-source development platform newly upgraded on the capable Xilinx Spartan 6 LX9 FPGA. The newly added 64Mbit SDRam chip adds new functionality and opportunities to the Pro.The Papilio Pro can be expanded by the use of “wings” which are stackable add-on modules, similar to Arduino shields, through the use of 48 I/O pins (don’t worry, the Pro is backwards compatible with all Papilio One wings).

Do you dream of basking in the glow of 8-Bit VGA? Dream no longer, my friend. The Papilio VGA Wing has all of the hardware you need to add a VGA output to your next Papilio project.
VGA is great because it’s fairly universal, grab any old computer monitor and you’ve got yourself a full-color display to output graphics, text or just amorphous clouds of colorful fluff. The VGA Wing is comprised of a standard 15-pin High Density connector which is connected via resistor voltage dividers to a row of male pin headers which will plug directly into your Papilio FPGA development board.
