The XC4000 BORG board is a PC-based prototyping board with two user" FPGAs, two routing" FPGAs, and a fifth FPGA which implements the glue logic for the PC bus. The BORG board is a reusable educational tool intended for a variety of classes; the BORG board, its toolset, and the reprogrammability of the FPGAs further reduce the time/cost of constructing prototypes using FPGAs. This report documents the design, implementation, and the use of BORG: A Field-Programmable Prototyping Board.
