Hello,
I see no one's posted here since last year...
I recently decided to look into FPGA's again to see if anyone had managed to produce either a DIY or commercial version.
I saw the X6500 guys tried and probably sold a few for mining SHA-256 when it was still viable but that petered out pretty fast during the last 'adjustment' - crash! ...
Since then, has anyone been interested in or looking to re-program the X6500 for Scrypt mining or will that make the chips too power hungry much less capable of hashing at a decent / profitable rate in the first place?
I see the flgamining.com website is still up but there doesn't seem to be any activity since they announced shutting down the operations way back when.
Such a shame too. I really like their design. I mean 400MH/s at less than 15W is still efficient.
I'm still mining Scrypt with my5 chip GridSeeds since electricity is included in the rent Wink. They even still make me a whole dollar per day sometimes! Cheesy
Anyone know of any new FPGA designs in the works or available for us DIY techy's?
Peace!

Maybe you can use it to mine blake256 algo

I remember a guy who was trying to do scrypt ascics using fpgas back in 2013 - didn't work out.  Remember looking into it extensively and found out that they should expect @ best like 150 KH if tweaking out those FPGAs which is why it was never implemented for scrypt - you could easily get 4x the hashes with a properly tuned gpu.

Hello,
Nothing new? Is there any opportunity for Monero mining using a FPGA?
