Gee…FPGA is not so cheap to work with. Back to the drawing board until I can afford FPGA. Look at the end of this posting to see the prices.

 

Here are some development FPGA boards to get your started:

They start $800. Ouch.

Thr cheapest listed is $1700 at

Other prices were $14k-$30k.This is just for evaluation boards.

This could be an option but no mention of Matlab support

P.S. The thought of FPGA sounded fun until to you see the bill.
