Fomu: An FPGA in your USB Port

From 35C3 Wiki

Description FPGAs and CPUs in your USB port. They're here, and they're open source. But what good are they? Come and share your ideas. We'll give out free USB Tomu boards to people who ask good questions! We'll cover the basics of how Fomu is set up, as well as some of the cool and very open technology you can use today to develop on some very usable FPGAs.

Tomu is a computer in your USB port.

Fomu is an FPGA in your USB port.

"Why would anyone want to do that?" That's what we'd like to know! Come and hear the rationale behind some of the decisions, and share with us your project ideas. Find out what's going on with Fomu, the FPGA version of Tomu. Ask a question and be rewarded with a free Tomu!

We'll go over some of the technology we're looking forward to using with Fomu and how it can make a lot of this stuff more accessible.
