Almtracker 3 with FPGA on one board


The last version is working as expected but I just want to use one board. Not two (CPLD Cape + Almtracker3). I also want to be able to use it standalone, without the need for the BeagleBone. Therefore I decided to add a FPGA to the Almtracker3 board. It its possible to add a microblaze processor in the FPGA and run the board standalone. There will be less functionality but it will definitely be less expensive.  I also added i PMOD port for extra hardware. It can be used for example if you want to use a existing GPS or connect a display.

The new PCB has been sent of with DHL so it will arrive some time next week.
