Campaign Conclusion Countdown

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!

Product Choices


NeTV2 - Just the Board

Just the NeTV2 open video development board plus a 12V power supply. For the power developer who has their own JTAG box or the hobbyist who enjoys spending an afternoon provisioning a Raspberry Pi with the NeTV2 dev tools. Includes FPGA: Xilinx Artix-7 XC7A35T


NeTV2 Quickstart Package

For developers and users who want to skip the screwdrivers and go straight to a SSH prompt. The Quickstart Package is a turnkey solution for open video, optimized for video overlay. It's an NeTV2 dev board bundled with a Raspberry Pi 3 B+, 8 GiB SD card with pre-loaded base firmware package, power supply, and our custom HDMI Jumper, all assembled into a case and fully tested. Ready for you to SSH in and load your application code!


NeTV2 - Just the Case

All the plastic parts necessary to protect and mount your NeTV2 dev board: case top and bottom, front bezel, light pipes, standoffs, and screws. If you plan to mate this with your own Raspberry Pi as a video source, you'll also want to get the Custom HDMI Jumper.


Thermal Management Kit

Keep your NeTV2 cool with this thermal management kit that includes 30 mm fan with pre-crimped cable, mounting bracket, and a set of screws for attaching the fan to the bracket, and the bracket to the Peek Array in the NeTV2 enclosure.


Custom HDMI Jumper

Even the shortest HDMI cables don't quite fit inside the NeTV2 case, so we built a custom PCB that provides impedance-controlled differential pairs to bridge between the Raspberry Pi overlay video source and the NeTV2 open video dev board. Make sure to select the correct FPGA image when using this cable, as it leverages the pinout flexibility of the FPGA to optimize signal routing.
