    Base Board! Papilio FPGA Shield assembled and shipped to backer. Papilio FPGA Shields at this level WILL INCLUDE: -Spartan 3A 400K. Papilio FPGA Shields at this level WILL NOT INCLUDE: -No SRAM will be populated on the board but the footprint will be available. (Tip: In the spirit of DIY those with SMT soldering skills can solder on a SRAM chip themselves and drastically extend the power of the base design! We love this kind of stuff and want to extend the option to our fellow DIY'ers. Be aware that scorch marks on the board may void the warranty. :-) ) -The AV Overshield will NOT be included. International duties and taxes may apply.

    Prototype Partner! Everything from the $1000 level with the addition of exclusive prototypes of all the Overshields and Wings that I develop for the next six months. Every Papilio prototype I make I'll send an assembled copy to you, you'll have all the Papilio prototypes in your hands before everyone else. I can't guarantee they will work but you will get the good and the bad before anyone else. This will include at least 5 prototypes. Initial ideas for the next Wings and Overshields include, Logic Analyzer Overshield, Synth Overshield, MP3 Wing, FM Radio Wing. I don't know for sure that these are the next things to be prototyped but if I was starting today that's what is on the list.

    Personalized! Everything from the $1200 level plus the Backers name added to the back of the initial production run of boards. The names of backers at this level will be added to the back silkscreen of the initial production run of boards. Names will be added to the back of the FPGA Shield first and once room runs out any remaining names will go on the back of the AV Overshield. The order will be determined by whoever becomes a backer first.
