I'm also considering to buy one. But have few doubts. You claim that first batch buyers will get xilinx programming cable (clone I supose) and ISE 13.2 right?

What about upgrading ISE, it will be possible in future? When A7 arrives I wanted to experiment with them and fully licensed ISE will be necessary. For now ISE 13.3 supports XC7A8 & 15 but it requires licence (what kind I don't know). Can you check that is possible to upgrade and synthesize something for Atrixes?

Do you release schematics for board? I would like to look at it, before decide to buy.


do not ask too much about the ISE software please,  Wink

the SCHs will release @ approx. 11/26. when i came back home. Grin

Guess you are timing it with the BFL realease on Nov 25 then ? Nice. Competition is good between FPGA producers.

sorry, i do think BFL are scamers. so i never regard BFL as competitors.

I hear that! I am interested in your product and watching this thread!

Will this work out of the box on a windows computer? Thanks

yeah, admitting that Icarus is designed for developers and hardcore miners, but it is configed as a open-box-can-use product. only need install the USB-UART driver and a TCL environment.

Very cool and I am very interested. You said before you will be sending out the specs/design soon so we can check this out before we buy? Will you be able to do discount volume? Will you ship internationally?

Thank you!

all docs will announce @ 11/26.
first batch is only 10 of them, so at present there is no discount volume.
shipment is internationally.

Looking forward to 25 and 26 November.

25 = BFL magical unicorn = fake
26 = Icarus real PCB = real

Are there any more dense / powerful models in the pipeline ? Thanks !

Great, I'm waiting for that documentation before I'll decide to buy. I'm electronic engineer so its important factor to me.

all pcb design files released.

380M mining code is under test. this code is using MR. ZTEX's "sha256.v"

work queue implemented, real speed 20% increased.

pre-order will start soon....

Is this the most complex and the only fully opensourced hardware FPGA mining borad?

Thanks ngzhang !  Wink

By the way,what software do you use for PCB layout?

I m happy to hear your making progress in finalising towards the first batch.
Waiting for the chance to expand my fpga mining equip.

Thanks ngzhang !  Wink

The files he published seem to have been created by "Altium Designer".
A really good professional piece of software.

Folder name is AD10 so best guess is Altium Designer 10. CLOCK&GPIO.SchDoc seems to be broken, only 11kB and its empty. Also, there's no such page in PDF.

So, ATM is this the most powerful FPGA you can get for BTC mining ( in terms of getting the most hashes/s out of all the FPGA devices out there ) ?

Do you think BFL Labs can be a real product ?

Can you compete with them and do a similar design that gets like 1 GH/s ?

Thanks !

FPGA rig (or board) with ~ 1Gh/s is easy....the problem is the final price .... Cheesy

Indeed.

Two Virtex 6 with 350k LE's would do the job but also crack the 1000$ frontier easily.

Getting 500MH/s out of a mid-range V6 is not so simple. The mapper will freeze for 3+ days
with no errors/diagnostics about how to adjust the design...

[still burned out by 6s150..]

Looked at the schematics for the PCB.  From what little I know about circuit design and building (I come from a background of designing/building amplifiers) it looks very nice.  Especially the power supply section.
