RTEMS on a softcore

In the “low cost FPGA” market is also the BeMicro FPGA. I haven’t done much with mine but here’s a few details:
* Cyclone® III EP3C16F256C8N FPGA
* 4 MB SRAM
* 16 MHz clock oscillator
* 3 status LEDs
* 8 user LEDs
* 80-pin edge connector
$49 price on Altera’s web site, not sure what distributor’s S&H adds.
The edge connector is a funky, small form factor but Samtec makes a receptacle so you could, in theory, build a small carrier board with what-ever physical connectors you need.

Keep it on the mailing list. That looks like a good one too. All good suggestions. So many options. Ideally, I would like a single board capable of running RTEMS, with at least 128 MB of RAM, SD flash card, Ethernet or wifi, with 1 or 2 DAP's, an i2c pin, RS-232 interface, and with at least 6 hardware PWM GPIO pins. I want to put this in my quadcopter. I already have a micro controller driving the rotors and connected to the sensors, but rather than adding a CPU, I want to combine them in a single board. One of my coworkers likes playing with FPGA's, so I said I would see if I could find an FPGA with soft core.

that's funny, I have the same thoughts.
My goal is to port LEON3 on xilinx board, but i'll probably start with something like microblaze.
Actually yesterday i ordered this board:
(prize is $140)
So on some stage we could probably somehow exchange information.

Has anybody got RTEMS to run on an inexpensive FPGA based board? I'm looking at:
Does anybody have a BSP for this? Any inexpensive Altera boards?
