First Stretch Goal - Free Tomu

Now that we’ve hit our initial funding goal, I’d like to announce our first stretch goal for the NeTV2, which unlocks at $35,000: a free Tomu bundled with every NeTV2 board!

Tomu is a tiny open-source computer that fits in a USB Type-A port. NeTV2, as mated with a Raspberry Pi in the Quickstart Package, features four USB Type-A ports.

What to do with all those empty USB ports?

Well, Tomu is the easiest way to add an extra pair of status LEDs to your NeTV2. Each Tomu provides up to two USB-controllable LEDs, one red, one green, for whatever status information you need to add for your specific application.

Perhaps you’d like to know if TERC-4 audio packets are accidentally being sent down the link. Or maybe you’d like to be alerted if the video isn’t coming in at the resolution you expected. Or maybe you just want your NeTV2 to blink a light whenever it’s your birthday, simply because you can. Domo arigato, Tomu-san!

Who doesn’t want more blinkenlights? Help spread the word and get a Tomu (a $35 value) for free!

$215

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.


$345

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!


$445

100T NeTV2 Quickstart Package - Limited

This is a limited-availability configuration of the Quickstart Package that has the super-beefy 100T FPGA (a $170+ value) rather than the 35T. This gives you about a 3x boost in logic and RAM capacity - plenty of power for even machine learning/artificial intelligence implementations.


$25

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.


$25

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.


$15

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.
