Am I right in thinking it would be relatively straight forward to repurpose one of these FPGAs to mine say Terracoin or any alt which is pretty much a cut and paste job?

I do not expect that you read the whole 43 pages of this thread.....but can you honestly read at least the last page before you ask ?

Wasn't that covering just scrypt? As far as I'm aware TRC isn't based on scrypt?

When I said cut and paste I meant alts based on Bitcoin, not the scrypt alts... If I wanted to mine those I'd just chuck together a GPU rig.

You just enter different pool details, that is it. If it is SHA-256, the FPGAs dont give a shit what you are mining. Neither do ASICs.

Thanks, that makes sense.

What was the final word on V42 firmware? Did anyone see reasonable performance from it considering the increased hardware errors?

I'm using it from 2 weeks now, the final increase (including errors) is about 10%. The other 10% is wasted on errors.

Note that also they need more power, better cooling and this depends on how good is your PSU!

Yes these can mine any sha-256 with no mods. nmc, dvc, bte, ixc, etc.

I wouldn't use v42. But some had success..

I hope I don't offend black arrow but since they won't make any more, guys these are available now (well wait for batch 6), cheaper and way less power.

Sorry, wasn't aware that TRC is SH256. My bad ! Apologies !

Could somebody help us add https://www.cardreaderfactory.com/shop/lancelot.html to: https://en.bitcoin.it/wiki/Mining_hardware_comparison

We have tried but can't figure out how to.

Thanks.

Wow, I cannot recommend this company/group of people enough.  I feel sorry for putting them through a bit (changing payment method based on BTC price, adding items to an order that already existed and had been paid for, causing additional work on their end) but they have rolled with the punches and have an amazing response time.  I love the idea of having a fast ASIC-based mining army as much as the next person, however I also love to tinker and support open-source (in this case, that includes open hardware) so if you are looking for a FPGA mining solution at a good price, I can't recommend blackarrow and his crew enough (also I've priced the chips they are using, even at wholesale they are not making very much at all).  At the very least this will give me some hardware to play with and even design a custom enclosure for while I wait a few months (hopefully not longer) for my BFL order to arrive  Tongue.

I'm looking forward to any ASIC they will release, I completely agree with DBG!

...if you are looking for a FPGA mining solution at a good price...

$350 is not a "good price" for 400MH if you are looking to ever have any ROI. These will return less than $100 if plugged in today.

Please realize that FPGA miners are dead!!!

They come with a 6 month ROI warranty.
