By far the most amazing Parallella hobby project to date has been together by Patrick Cazeles from France! Patrick has put together a miniaturized “super hi-fi” jukebox. The box on the top is Patrick’s Parallella work, the box on the bottom in the picture is his old digital power amplifier. I had the pleasure of meeting Patrick at the last Parallella Technical Conference in Tokyo. Patrick gave his presentation in Japanese to a stunned audience.
Check out Patrick’s forum thread, showing how to:
- Use the Zynq FPGA for signal processing
- Custom soldered connectors to the Parallella board
- Build an effective thermal case
- Built a touch screen UI
All the work is available as open source.
