Mercury FPGA Development Board

Mercury is a compact, low-cost FPGA development board in a breadboard-friendly DIP package. It was designed by myself and fellow OU SECS alumni Jason Gorski. There wasn't a tiny, affordable FPGA module out there with all the features that we wanted, so we decided to make it ourselves!

We like to think of Mercury as the "Swiss Army knife" of FPGA development boards. It combines a Xilinx Spartan-3A FPGA and all the necessary power and configuration circuitry, along with 5 volt tolerant I/O pins, an eight-channel ADC, and a fast SRAM, all in a breadboard-friendly 64-pin DIP package.
