FPGA - Spartan 3E board

I bought a Digilent Spartan 3E "starter" board on Ebay, April 20, 2022.

I also have an Openbench Logic Sniffer, which is based on the XC3S250E chip. (more or less half the size of the chip on the "starter".)

These are old and obsolete parts, but entirely useful for me to learn how to work with FPGA devices. The starter board schematic has 2006 dates.

They use the older "ISE" software. Here, "ISE" stands for "integrated synthesis environment".

Feedback? Questions? Drop me a line!
