    500 dollars a piece? FPGA vendors are going to take the market by storm…

    I did not expect it to be cheap, but I did not expect it to be that expensive either. I’ve only worked with CPLDs never FPGAs, so I’m not exactly sure of the normal price.

    You guys got too used to pricing of stuff like Rasberry Pi or crappy chinese HDMI Sticks.

    The Chip alone costs around 180 Euro (maybe around 150 if you buy a few)! And “normal” companies that are not after super high consumer(!) volumes must sell their products for production cost *2 or more if they want to make any profit at all (due to low volumes and high development costs).
    This is clearly not intended for consumer/hobby users, and I am pretty sure you can get a much better price when you buy 100pcs as industrial customer.
