I don't think this is feasible. The FPGA is actually the part that is most tricky to solder onto such a board (and easiest to mess up), so it seems backward to me to ship kits without FPGAs.

Yeah now that I think about it I would probably include the FPGAs but there would be no price discount on them. A kit like this isnt meant for someone with no experience doing surface mount soldering. Someone who has experience doing BGA reworks and repairs would have no problem soldering these FPGAs. I don't see any problem in allowing people to get discounted boards by assembling them themselves. Of course we would put a big disclaimer warning people that soldering these small parts and BGAs is not easy and should be done by someone with experience and we offer no warranty at all on the kits.

Hey,

Ya either way I would be cool with it. Maybe you should post a thread about kits with prices. I completly understand not offering any warrenty. There should not be one at all personally. It should be done at the users own risk. Basically what kind of prices are we talking. I would like to see a 8X or 12X back plane in the kit so that I could get 1.6 to 2.4 GH/S. Let me know what you are thinking./

I lost any interest in DIY FPGA's for this reason:
