Hi all and Digilent representatives! I am a "long" user of the Cmod A7 and am quite pleased with it, except for the choice of SRAM. And on the side I have been playing with another RAM that is easy to use, delivers better performance (about 200 MB/s for the 3.3v version), and more space (8Mbyes) which would be a really nice update to the Cmod-A7. The new "HyperRAM" (http://www.digikey.com/products/en/integrated-circuits-ics/memory/774?k=hyperram&k=&pkeyword=hyperram&pv142=133&FV=ffe00306%2C1c0011&mnonly=0&newproducts=0&ColumnSort=0&page=1&stock=1&quantity=0&ptm=0&fid=0&pageSize=25) is like a combination between DDR and SRAM, this blog post describes quite nicely (with later posts showing implementation): https://warmcat.com/embedded/hardware/hyperbus/2016/09/02/hyperram.html What is Digilent's view/thoughts on the usage of HyperRAM instead of the (aging) SRAM? A quick check seems to suggest that it is about half the price of the SRAM currently used as well. I hope for a fruitful discussion. Best regards!
