Great news for everyone who has been asking about the Papilio Pro and some other products availability: Since we are out of stock on Papilio Pro boards we decided to take pre-orders and offer you the biggest discount to try to make up for the inconvenience. If you are willing to back order the Pro we are knocking the previous sale price by $15 so the new sale price is $69.99 which is the lowest Papilio pro price ever and we will ship your order as soon as the new batch is complete around October 15th.
On an other side we expect the new LogicStart MegaWing and Papilio DUO batches to be ready next week so we are now taking pre-orders for these items too.
Don’t miss the opportunity and take advantage of our new discount offer before the finish of the new batch:
Here at Gadget Factory we are happy to announce that our next generation of products are now available at our online store. The long awaited Papilio DUO along with the new Papilio Shields are finally here after a successful Kickstarter campaign that helped us raise more than $62.000 in funds to make this dream come true, here is a short description of each product:
The Papilio DUO has an FPGA on the top and the same chip that is used in the Arduino Leonardo (ATmega32U4) on the bottom. It’s like having an Arduino with a full circuit laboratory connected to it! For example, you can draw circuits to move pins, connect extra serial ports, or connect a bitcoin miner to the Arduino-Compatible chip. Just plug it into your computer using a USB cable, download our software and start drawing your own circuits.
The LogicStart Shield provides everything needed to get started with VHDL and FPGA development on the Papilio DUO with one convenient and easy to connect circuit board.
The Computing Shield provides all of the hardware needed to recreate classic computing systems on the Papilio DUO. Here are some existing retro computing projects that can be easily converted.
Good news everyone 🙂 the Papilio DUO and the Papilio Shields are expected to arrive in stock early next week and we are now taking pre-orders for the new items in the Gadget Factory Store. We encourage you to pre-order now and reserve your DUO because the numbers will be limited since the big part of the first batch went to Kickstarter backers.
Good new today we got the MicroSD and the I/O Buffer wings back in stock after a long wait and we also have a couple brand new wings for the Papilio which are the RGB LED Panel and the VGA Camera wings and We are offering these awesome new products at a special price of $6.99 for the first two days only!
Now we have a great selection of Papilio wings and for those who don’t know much about this type of products: the wings plug into the Papilio board and provide peripheral functionality. The Papilio One can accept up to six Wings that can operate independently of each other. Wings usually provide ala carte functionality for rapid prototyping.
Pedro Hernandez is a cofounder of Pcdemano.com a spanish website that makes reviews about the Arduino, raspberry pi, BananaPi and more. He recently decided to add FPGA’s to that list and chose the Papilio Pro as an FPGA development board to start with.
Today he posted his first review for an FPGA board and a nice introduction to FPGA’s for all the Spanish speakers out there.
