Want to learn about FPGAs, but don’t know where to start? You’re in the right place! AMD, in partnership with Crowd Supply and other partners, is pleased to welcome you to the AMD FPGA Playground, where we’ll showcase Crowd Supply projects built on AMD FPGAs and hold giveaways, workshops, livestreams, and other events around the latest FPGA technologies and tools.

Are you building something amazing with an AMD FPGA?

If so, you may be eligible to join the AMD FPGA Playground and enjoy these benefits:

To be eligible, your project must uniquely showcase AMD technology and pass the usual vetting process applied to all Crowd Supply projects. Eligibility is determined on a case-by-case basis and solely at the discretion of AMD and Crowd Supply. To get started, submit your Crowd Supply project proposal and mention your interest in participating in the AMD FPGA Playground.

Livestreams & Giveaways

In these episodes of The Teardown Sessions, we take a deeper dive into some of the Crowd Supply projects using AMD FPGAs, and give away some great dev kits and swag to boot. Subscribe to The FPGA Playground for a chance to win the next giveaway!
