Conventional MRI consoles are high-cost and difficult to customize, typically using a proprietary language for creating pulse sequences. Recently, FPGAs have become the tool of choice in designing custom MRI consoles for their flexibility and speed. In this work, we describe a low-cost, open source, FPGA-based console using an off-the-shelf board that provides flexibility in pulse-sequence programming, robust timing, and excellent signal stability. Our goal is to facilitate the development of custom acquisition methods and provide a useful console for MR education and low-cost systems. We demonstrate its function by acquiring a 2D spin-echo image on an MIT/Martinos Tabletop scanner.
