It is not easy as Scrypt mining requires more memory and access it often

Scrypt requires significant onboard memory to process transactions. So it's more than a software hack, sorry buddy. Sad

FPGAs aren't mere software.

While scrypt in general might need some RAM added, Litecoin's scrypt can probably be done.

I know, I'm not saying it's impossible, it just won't be as effective as cheaper and more available options it's premise attempts to replace...
