Probably. So, raw parts would likely be under $50 per board. Wonder how
much would be needed other than connectors and FPGA. Probably should have
fuses. Of course, the truly expensive part would be design and
testing. I don't think I could do it. I didn't even have any idea what
to do with the osciliscope I used to have (parents gave it away thinking I
didn't want it just because I didn't know what to do with it).
