Tarjetas DE2 y SPARTAN3

Buenas comentarles.. un correo me llego de un estudiante de digitales 1 y me preguntaba que tarjetas de fpga para vhdl tenemos en la facultad, pues le dije que habia ya un post en el blog sobre este tema... peroooo buscando en el blog no lo encontre por ningun lado.. de seguro cuando actualize la base de datos con el backup que tenia.. pues no se debio guardar este post..
Vuelvo a escribir sobre estas tarjetas alguito, espero les sea de ayuda..


esta es la tarjeta que te prestan en laboratorio
