Project update 7 of 14
Almost to the finish line! We’re down to the last 48 hours of the campaign. I’m happy to announce we’ve smashed through our second stretch goal and the thermal management kit has been unlocked. Now, we’ve got just a couple days to push the campaign to $60k and unlock the higher-capacity FPGA for developers. If you know anyone who wants to get into FPGAs, video, or would maybe just enjoy customizing an open CPU core like the RISC-V, now is the time to let them know about the campaign so they, too, can opt-in for an FPGA upgrade.
I’m also happy to share some of the great community developments that are already emerging for the NeTV2. In addition to the thought-provoking and compelling use cases contributed by the community at the netv2-ideas repository, @enjoy_digital has been pushing 12Gbps of data through the NeTV2’s PCI-e x4 interface and @xobs has extended the VexRISC-V core to connect to GDB via Etherbone. It’s been amazing to see these maestroes at work, and the NeTV2 project is very fortunate to already have powerhouses like @mithro, @enjoy_digital, and @xobs making commits to the codebase. Come join the fun!
