The Scrypt Algorithm is inherently different from the SHA-256 algorithm.

Bitcoin is based on the SHA-256 algorithm.
Litecoin uses scrypt.

As ASIC's are specialized for one purpose. (In the jalapeno's case, SHA-256, it won't be able to mine Litecoin effectively.)

Only BTC. I is an application specific integrated circuit, and the algorithm for BTC (SHA256) is hardcoded. LTC uses a different cryptography algorithm (scrypt)

Litecoin is only meant for GPU or CPU mining as there are memory requirements to mine a block. At the moment, litecoin is FPGA and ASIC resistant.

I was curious but I figured as much, thanks for the prompt replies.

This hobbyist has two jalapeno's on order so I'll join up with the slush pool and wait and see

Before you commit to BFL ASIC, better check all the posts in the forum on the BFL ASIC status. I should have gone with Avalon if I read all these before I placed my order.

Man, even if it could mine ltc, BFL is just a shame of a company.
