The SBC was designed for data acquistion applications, but can be used in many other ways. The fpga is intended to allow for interfacing with user created expansion boards. There is an 80 pin 2mm header with about 65 FPGA IO connected to it. A 50 pin memory interface connector exists in version 20040720, but may not be included in the future.
