The igloo FPGA is functionally equivalent to an A3P250 (and so pin compatible with the A3P060 and A3P125 in the infectus) but isn't 5v tolerant. The evaluation board is powered from USB and can provide 1.2v, 1.5v, 2.5v or 3.3v. Plus the evaluation board comes with a lot more IO lines than the infectus.
There's also a built in USB-serial chip, so I was actually thinking the whole thing could be turned into a USB dongle + single wire connection to the PS3 for the geohot exploi where the exploit program tells the FPGA to pulse via the serial connection. It wouldn't even need a ground connection to motherboard as we would already have PS3's ground via the USB port.
Also, personally, I don't think there's all that much need for the onboard flash on the infectus, certainly not for a "simple" operation of just reading/writing flash and dumping it via the serial connection.
Only problem I've found so far is that the programmer driver doesn't work with 64-bit windows, so I'm just waiting until I re-install 32-bit windows on a spare machine.
