Hi all,

What is the difference between the FPGA starter kit and FPGA development kit.

In some websites, I read FPGA starter kit is used for general prototyping.

Can anybody give any specific examples for general prototyping in starter kits

Thanks in advance

Regards,
Vijay

Startkits are usually low cast kits suitable for basics learning.
Development kits are meant to be used for commercial quality product development/testing/prototyping.

Starterkits are low cost as compared to development kits.

Starterksits are limited on features (HW/SW) while development kits aren't.

It is also possible that Development kits that are suitable to special business needs are avaialble. e.g. there can be an PCI development kit which won't required you to do write PCI handling logic and will perform PCI logic connections to the board connectors automatically.
