What you would need is an FPGA board, one or more SD

but the 'old' type), and optionally a little board with the enc424j600 chip
from Microchips on it to allow for a DEUNA-type ethernet controller.
The de0 board from Terasic has the advantage that it already has an SD card
connector onboard. But, if you want to add the ethernet stuff, for instance by
connecting a PMODNIC100 from Digilent, you'd have to wire it - look at the
pictures on my site how that looks.
I just ordered the de0 board from Terasic.
What do recommend as good online reference for programing
the FPGA? I still want to play around with some simple
computers in the 18 to 24 bit width range and since
I have to do it all from scratch, programing the FPGA for
what bit length I like looks, to be easy. It will be interfacing
the core logic to memory and I/O that I may need help with.
Hope that's a clear enough shopping list for you
PS. I used CUPL at one time for ALTERA CPLD's and I like using it.
