Hope that David/Hoglet can/will share his view on this latest board. That seems to be available more widely on AliExpress as a S602 board.
I'm sure I'm stating the obvious here, but it's defintely not compatible with the existing CPU adapter boards, and it doesn't have a USB UART, which is a show stopper for me.
If I was planning to re-design the CPU adapter board (which I currently have no plans to do), I don't think I would pick this board.
There are a few options I would consider:
1. Cloning the eepizza board
2. Switching to the DE0 Nano (expensive, and would require work to the FPGA designs to produce an Altera version)
3. Switching to the Mojo V3 (a widely available Spartan 6 board)
4. Switching to a Spartan 7 board (like the QMTECH XC7S15)
None of these are ideal, and all involve quite a lot of work.
