You don't know how right you are.  It gets even better....Since they don't update their Windows GUI apps...10 years later it won't run on the latest Windows.  I had to set up a Windows 7 machine to run their @#$# software!!! ;)

This is the dreaded GUI app ...


(That Opal Kelly code is very nice but isn't designed to support all the TI boards the FPGA plugs into.  Believe me I tried that route. ;)
