Here at Gadget Factory, we not only make hackable hardware, we encourage the hacking of hardware – especially if it’s one of our boards!
Papilio user Atomsoft describes his project to upgrade his Papilio One 250 board to a 500E chip. It’s a cool and easy project, and Atomsoft’s end result gives him a whole bunch of new gates to tool around with on his Papilio.
“Ok as you may have seen i have the Papilio One 250 board. I decided to do a upgrade instead of buying the 500E version. I decided to buy just the IC (FPGA) alone and desolder my old 250 IC and replace with a 500E.”
Take a look at Atomsoft’s Papilio upgrade project! Has anyone upgraded or altered their Papilio or any other board lately? Wanna share? Cool! Comment away.
