While waiting for the project is completed rph FPGA cluster, I set up an ultra low cost pc.
Surely the price will vary depending on which site you may be, these prices are in Barcelona.





Mini-ITX Atom D525: 75,95 €
RAM SODIM 2gb: 15,34 €
PowerS ATX 500w: 11,80€
USB Flash 8gb 9€

http://youtu.be/1QvpH0Kk17k

Also I put a video on how to build your own DiskOnModule Flash SSD for 9 €



http://youtu.be/lq5IFn1s3eM

The equipment is controlled remotely by VNC, so you do not need any monitor installed which further reduce the cost.

The next update will connect a USB FPGA module directly to the motherboard, using the internal connector pins and feeding directly from the ATX.

Greetings.

Step 1 : build a pc
Step 2 : build fpga module,
Step 3 : plug in usb

I do understand one may need a computer to manage loads of FPGAs,
but these don't have to be power efficient when the point is having 10ghs+ worth of FPGAs.

What kind of crap-ass PSU have you gotten ? doesn't look even 80+

We add finally ztex FPGA module, you should install silentblocks or silicone caps to amortize the vibrations of the fan. The power connector is directly connected to the ATX power supply.

All equipment consumes 35W and generates 208 mh / s

Besides the fact that it is almost impossible to get because the pre-order line is so long, yes that is an awesome little computer. I have the single core version, and it runs like a dream.

Would something like this be of interest?



I could put it up on Bitmit for you. It would be 1 BTC with free shipping.
