Alorium Technology XLR8 Development Board

Alorium Tech XLR8 Development Board is an Arduino-compatible board that can be used as a drop-in replacement for the Arduino Uno. The XLR8's main processing chip is a Field-Programmable Gate Array (FPGA) that provides a reconfigurable hardware platform. The FPGA hosts a soft implementation of an ATmega328-compatible microcontroller, provides the ability to implement custom logic, and can interface directly to the processor.  XLR8 uses Arduino IDE to be programmed just like any standard Arduino-compatible board. The XLR8 can drive arrays as large as 1280 pixels.

Intel MAX10 - Intel MAX 10 FPGAs revolutionize non-volatile integration by delivering advanced processing capabilities in a low-cost, instant-on, small form factor programmable logic device. The XLR8 uses this specific 10M08 MAX10 FPGA.

Atmel ATmega328 8-Bit AVR MCU are high-performance RISC-based devices that combine 32KB ISP Flash memory with read-while-write capabilities, 1KB EEPROM, 2KB SRAM, 23 general-purpose I/O lines, 32 general-purpose working registers, serial programmable USART, and more.

USB to Serial Interface
FTDI FT232RQ (production boards will feature a FT230XQ) USB UART IC - is a USB to serial UART interface device which simplifies USB to serial designs and reduces external component count by fully integrating an external EEPROM, USB termination resistors and an integrated clock circuit which requires no external crystal, into the device.
