     21 * $49 each (student price)
     22 * Pros:  USB-downloading built in, simple, cheap, complete, has VGA video port and PS-2 keyboard port
     23 * Has 4 expansion connectors for DACs, ADCs etc
     24 * Cons:  no analog I/O or RAM except 8kB on FPGA
     25* [http://www.digilentinc.com/Products/Catalog.cfm?Cat=9 PMOD add-on boards]
     26 * DAC and ADC boards are around $20 each, many other functions are available

     30== Project Ideas ==
     31
     32* Using BASYS board with ADC/DAC modules (or equivalent)
     33 * ''''Digital Voltmeter'''.  Display on 4-digit display.  Could use a programmable-gain
     34  amplifier (i.e. AD524) on proto board for multi-range.
     35 * ''''Frequency Counter'''
     36 * ''''Function Generator''' (using DAC for output)
     37 * ''''Simple Oscilloscope''' using VGA video output.  This is a challenge because
     38  of the limited memory available in the XC3S100E FPGA (not enough for a 640x480 bitmap).
