Hello! I saw this project and I was trying to do it by myself.
I have used Basic Stamp I, Scenix SX, all done by CHIP Gracey. I have never used Parallax Propeller, but now I will, implemented in FPGA logic, as Soft Proppeller.
Thank you Chip for releasing Propeller 1 verilog source code.
Of course this DIP can be used small FPGA board or Microcontrolller with custom periperals thanks to the ZYNQ on board.
System Design:

Main Components/Features

Xilinx ZYNQ-7000
Dual ARM Cortex A9
256K OCM RAM
16MByte Flash, also useable as linear ROM
MicroSD Socket
Sil1143 Proximity and Ambient light sensor
RGB LED
DIP40 (Reversible pinout, not burning is inserted wrong!)
3 times 5x2 pin-headers
JTAG + 2 I/O
6 I/O
4 I/O
Open Source Hardware
Licenses

CERN OHL
Hardware design
GPL
Propeller 1 Verilog
Note: propeller verilog was released under GPL, later there was offical statement on Parallax forums that commercial use is also acceptable without need to stick to GPL. This should be verified however. It seems some old forum threads have vanished. In any case once release under GPL can be used under GPL as this can not be revoked. And the use of Propeller code is not all required, it is just on possible use case.
