BeagleWire is a completely open source FPGA development board. Unlike nearly all other FPGA dev boards, the BeagleWire’s hardware, software, and toolchain are completely open source.

The BeagleWire is a great tool for learning and teaching FPGAs, Verilog, and Linux kernel driver concepts. Advanced users could, for example, add Pmod modules for high speed data acquisition, software defined radio, and advanced control applications.
