If you’ve got a BeagleBone and an FPGA board you should give this Bitcoin mining rig a try. The hardware uses brute-force to solve hashes, looking for the rare sets that can be used as digital currency. This particular example is designed for the LOGi-bone which is an FPGA shield for the BeagleBone. But we don’t see anything that would make this difficult to use with other FPGA hardware.

Guess they are out of the loop since ASIC will be killing this mining soon.

Do you think spending, say, $150,000 on ASIC manufacturing for Bit Coin mining is worth it?
Ahahahahahah

This guy doesn't know that people already designed and manufactured ASICs and started mining with them.

Don't you love people who comment without even knowing the simplest fact?

A Spartan6 LX9?  Didn't someone here lash one of those up for sh*ts and grins and get a hashrate in the neighborhood of 5-20 MH/s from it?

google lx9 site:bitcointalk.org

Not even that much:

https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=9047.msg472810#msg472810

A bit over 3 MH/s.  Even my 9500GTs do better than that.

I suppose it is what they say it is.  They just don't go on to say that it'll never earn more than it burns up in power usage.  It might well be a fun toy to play with, and even a bit educational, but it won't cut it as a miner.
