After a short hiatus to take care of personal matters, I have returned! :-)
Now, about the FleaFPGA Uno availability problem: As I've previously stated, if there is sufficient demand then I will do a limited production run of boards. I have no need to make fifty boards just for myself :-)
Enquiries I have received via email while I was away have been encouraging. Enquiry volumes however could be best described as a trickle rather than a flood - but that is possibly because most people were put off by the 'out of stock' status etc. :-)
So, I have started talking to the assembly house again towards doing a follow-on production run. If you have a real interest in obtaining a FleaFPGA Uno board, kindly register that interest either here or via the 'enquiry' button on the http://www.fleasystems.com/fleaFPGA_Uno.html page. Many thanks.

Seasons Greetings Everyone!
I have some news regarding my FleaFPGA Uno project to date:
First off, the good news:
- All FleaFPGA Uno pre-production boards are now completely sold out.
- FleaFPGA Uno's User Manual is at a 'tried and tested' revision, thanks to feedback from FleaFPGA Uno members.
- F32c SoC for the FleaFPGA Uno platform has now been merged with the main F32c github repository.
Unfortunately, not all of the news is good. Recent personal events (i.e. 'life') have forced me to put my homebrew projects on hold indefinitely until I can return to some sense of normality again. These have also had the added drawback of placing major financial constraints on me going forward with respect to follow-on production runs etc..
To complicate matters, there was a far less than expected number of enquiries on the back of the recent and well-written Hackaday article. I was disappointed by this, but that's life..
Given the above, I am likely not going to make any decision on follow-on production until well into the new year.
Thankyou once again for all your interest and support of my crazy homebrew projects.
Happy Holidays - hopefully with some hacking involved! ;-)

Hello again :)
So, after a few distractions etc. I have finally managed to put up a dedicated FleaFPGA Uno project page. This includes links to project examples as well as the User Manual (with board schematics included). Feel free to check it out. Thanks! ;)
Thankyou to those of you who took a chance and bought my FleaFPGA Uno pre-production board. I am hopeful you will find them interesting, insightful and/or useful. :D
Going beyond the FleaFPGA Uno pre-production run: I have not yet decided what I am going to do with regard to possible mass-production of FleaFPGA Uno. Looking at all options around that currently. Assuming there is sufficient demand, I would at least consider doing a limited run of finished boards. I welcome any suggestions and/or ideas that you may have. Thanks again.

For your entertainment, thought I'd get in front of a camera to talk about my 'FleaFPGA Uno' board. Cheers and Enjoy. Valentin.

Hello again. :)
Good news! After passing several rounds of in-house testing, I am pleased to announce that I now have a limited number of FleaFPGA Uno boards available for ordering. Please either PM or contact me for order details if you haven't already done so. Thanks.
More to follow.. Thanks for reading!

I wanted to share a nice overview of the FleaFPG-Uno board done by Dave Jone's for EEVBlog when [Valentin Angelovski] ran into him at a trade show. I think it highlights the low-cost FPGA board nicely.
Skip ahead to 28:00 minute mark - HaD seems to strip the time from URL. Hmm, or try:

Sorry about the delay folks.. Here are the first pictures of my latest Rev.E1 FleaFPGA Uno pre-production boards in assembled form:
I have a bunch of these boards coming to my workbench on Friday and cannot wait to test them! ;-)

After a few distractions, construction and assembly of a batch of FleaFPGA Uno Rev.E1 boards are now underway.
Changes from the previous Rev.D boards:
1.) Fixed some minor issues with my reset and DV out interfaces.
2.) Fixed (ie reversed) the order of the Analog Input channels on the PCB silkscreen layer (D'oh! :-)
3.) Minor cosmetic changes/improvements etc.
Looking at around four weeks before these arrive for testing. This gives me some time to prepare things like code examples as well as user documentation among other things. Thankfully I already have Revision.D boards on-hand that work so I won't be idle.
My next blog will likely focus on upcoming HDL and/or coding examples for my Uno.
Well that's all for now.. stay tuned for further updates and thanks for reading! :-)
