OMAP + FPGA Board.

Hello,

I have been searching for a FPGA addon board or single board with a
OMAP + FPGA.
Is there any such product available in the market today?

So far I have not been able to find such a thing.

Thanks
Brij

No that I am aware of.

It greatly depends on what you want to do and how fast the connection
needs to be, how much you want to spend and how much I/O you need

If you just want to do some simple things: I think you could easily
connect a xilinx spartan 3a evalution board (dirt cheap, usd 49:
http://www.xilinx.com/products/devkits/aes_sp3a_eval400_avnet.htm )
You would need to solder the expansion connector to your beagle, then
you could wire your own cable and use SPI to connect the beagle to the
FPGA (of course you would need to implement SPI on the FPGA but that
is probably not a big deal).

If you try this, I would be interested in the outcome.

You mean like this?

The trick is finding a board that makes it easy to power the IO bank
from the 1.8 volt supply so you can avoid level shifters.

Have a look at this, but it’s not an omap…

I have designed a board connecting OMAP3530 with a very little Altera FPGA(EPM570) in order to change the interface voltage level 1.8->3.3.It is not a hard work I think.

Well, this is just ARM 9 (400 Mhz), in that case you can try
Hawkboard. The advantage here is it has UPP (16bit Universal Parallel
Port) that can be used to interface any external FPGA at high speed.

Rampage Robotics are apparently working on a board which combines a
Gumstix with a Pico Computing FPGA kit:
