It seems that these devices are capable of running Ubuntu. Given the specs on these devices, has anybody tried to mine with these? I mean, to connect an FPGA to these and then use CG/BFGMiner. Could the USB interface be able to handle the bandwidth of a USB ethernet adapter and a couple of FPGAs? I've heard that the r-pi is very limited on the amount of FPGAs that can run on it and that it's slow since the NIC runs off the USB, but these devices are much faster and have higher specs.

Any thoughts?

To my knowledge, to connect the Mk802 you must use wifi or an NIC usb, while the raspberry pi has an ethernet plug in board.

Anyway in both cases, the traffic generated by a miner should not collapse any network interface.

About run cgminer in mk802, I guess must be harder because its operating system is android, so maybe to compile need others dependeces.

vitruvio, OP says the MK802 is capable of running Ubuntu, so no need for messing with android.

OP: Do it, be a trailblazer!

I see,

I only know about mk802(z802) in a comparative with raspberry pi, have better hardware but is 3x expensive than this.

I think both are enough to control a "couple" of ASICS
 
Make your choice,

All right, I'll give it a try and I'll post here once I get some results.

R-pi's USB troubles are a hardware design flaw, not a problem with the specs. If it weren't for that flaw, I expect it'd work fine. So you're probably good with something that's got better specs Smiley
