Programming The Xilinx Chip
Unless you have a hardware programmer and adapter already for Xilinx 84pin PLCC chips, you have three choices. You can:

Considering a brand new programmer (HW-130) can run you $800+, and people seldom sell theirs on ebay, your best bet is probably to mail me your chip and e-mail me the code you want programmed onto it. Then I'll simply mail the thing back to you. I offer this service because I know this step can be a huge PITA compared to the rest. I only ask you pay for shipping fees :). Contact info:
