Lucid, the Mojo IDE, and Arduino Compatibility

2 likes

Hello Kickstarter!

It's been a while since the last update, but I have some exciting news to share with you. 

Lucid and the Mojo IDE

For the past 14 months, I have been working hard on the new Mojo IDE that supports a new hardware description language, Lucid, that was designed to help make working with FPGAs more enjoyable and easier to learn.

The Mojo IDE has a ton of helpful features such as auto-complete, real-time error checking, auto-formatting, and a library of components for you to use in your own projects.

Be sure to check out our blog post about it here!

Arduino Compatibility

When we first announced Arduino compatibility for the Mojo, we had to exclude the Mojo V2 since the ATmega16U4 wasn't supported by the Arduino IDE. However, we have lifted this restriction with our plugin for the Arduino IDE version 1.6.x. 

You will have to program the Arduino compatible bootloader into your Mojo V2, which requires an external programmer such as an Arduino, or AVR ISP mkII. For more information on updating the bootloader, click here.

Click here for info on installing the new plugin and working with the Arduino IDE.

As always, thank you everyone for your support!

Hello Backers!

I just wanted to let you know we are having a Cyber Monday sale for 20% off all the boards we make! Head over to our site to check it out! It's a great way to pick up a shield or two for your Mojo or snag another Mojo!

Also, we are working hard on some really cool stuff for the Mojo. If you would like to be one of the first people to see it, sign up to be a beta tester by filling out this form. We will be sending the beta our to beta testers by the end of the year. 

As always, thanks so much for your support!

The Mojo is now Arduino compatible, and we have a new shield!

I'm happy to announce that we have a new bootloader for the Mojo V3 that allows the microcontroller to be programed with the Arduino IDE! 

If you already have a Mojo V3, you can follow the instructions found here to burn the new bootloader onto you board. If you don't already have a Mojo V3, all new Mojos are shipping with the Arduino compatible bootloader already programmed.

This will allow you to work on projects that involve both the FPGA and the microcontroller on the Mojo!

SDRAM Shield

I am also excited to announce we are now selling the SDRAM Shield. This shield features 256Mbit (32MB) of SDRAM that is easy to add to any project.

Be sure to check out our example project, on it's product page, that has a simple SDRAM controller designed to work with this shield at 100MHz. We use this demo project to test all the new shields.

As always, thank you all for your support!

New Shield and Thanksgiving Sale

Hello Everyone!

We have a new shield, the Servo Shield!

This shield features 24 5V IOs broken out on 3-pin servo style headers. This allows you to connect up to 24 servos or other 5V devices. Since the pins are bi-directional, you can even connect things like 5V sensors. 

Check out its product page for more information and videos.

Thanksgiving Weekend Sale

For Thanksgiving weekend we are having a huge sale on all our boards. Now would be a great time to pick up another Mojo, or maybe the Clock/Visualizer Shield for your desk.

This sale only lasts through Monday!

Click here to check out the sale!

As always, thank you for supporting the Mojo.

Blowout Sale! Get another Mojo for only $39.99
