Spartan 3 - Demo Board to Production

Posted on 2008-10-27

I've done some development with a Xilinx Spartan-3A development board for the past while, and now I'm looking to create some circuits that employ the Spartan chip itself. Do I necessarily have to get back into PCB design, or are there pre-made boards or mounts so that I can still do this myself with my trusty soldering kit?

Also, anybody know of any good sites or books on this topic. I've basically just made some DSP designs with the Spartan 3 chip and would prefer to make a dedicated system for the job rather than have to haul around my $200 demo board.

Hello,

I think you have to design and build your own PCB which is much cheaper than the demo boards, the following link has a description about anything related to PCB.

The following links can provide you prototypes or even large batches:
