What is the voltage range for snickerdoodle’s I/O pins?

The voltage levels for the FPGA I/O pins (JA1, JA2, JB1, JB2, JC1) are settable to between 1.2V and 3.3V.

snickerdoodle one has two independent “banks” of 50 FPGA I/O pins (JAx and JBx); each can be set to any I/O voltage in the aforementioned range. snickerdoodle black adds a third independent FPGA I/O bank of 25 I/O pins (JC1).

A 3.3V power supply output is supplied on each FPGA I/O connector, which can be used with a single jumper to set the I/O voltage to 3.3V for that bank without any additional external components. However, to use an I/O voltage other than 3.3V (1.2V to < 3.3V), that voltage must be supplied to the I/O bank. The microprocessor I/O (J3) have a fixed voltage of 1.8V. Note: this is required to support Ethernet on the baseboards, as RGMII does not support I/O voltages above 2.5V. The analog, audio, JTAG etc. I/O on J2 all have a fixed I/O voltage of 3.3V.
