Supercomputing for Everyone

I do have like an orange warning light slightly blinking about the lack of USB connector a la the zedboard and all kinds of webpacl licenses, but I hope the whole will work and allow some fun projects to be implemented.

Also I am not sure how easy it is to interface essential zinq-arm libraries (or whatever) to do neat interfacing with the FPGA, and maybe partial reloading (not essential, of course). I don't think the Xilinx ARM tools are free, or maybe with a locked license.
Of course I'll be glad if it all works smooth with the ISE webpack, it's fun to make nice FPGA designs and test them in practice, especially on the 7020s pretty fast and big enough infrastructure. Together with the floating point power of the Adaptiva chip that could well be a winner design.
