The Replay board was designed as a low cost universal development board for running the cores provided here. It was time consuming to port the designs to 3rd party reference boards, many of which had features we didn’t need. The board provides a high quality base platform, which can be expanded with various daughter boards for specific applications.

It is available to buy, see below for resellers.
