Hi,
I'm not terribly familiar with programming FPGAs - and I'm sure I'm not alone on that. Are there some simple instructions describing equipment required, and how to program?

Do you foresee any problem programming the FPGA on 3rd party 'clone' avalon miners (e.g. lketc's avalon3 miner)? They seem to have much different electronics layout and it is quite possible that they tweak the source to match their design (it's impossible to tell for sure, as they do not provide source code).

https://en.bitcoin.it/wiki/Avalon1#Update_FPGA_controller_firmware
There are two methods: using free software xc3sprog + Jtag or using xilinx tools.

Do you foresee any problem programming the FPGA on 3rd party 'clone' avalon miners (e.g. lketc's avalon3 miner)? They seem to have much different electronics layout and it is quite possible that they tweak the source to match their design (it's impossible to tell for sure, as they do not provide source code).

lketc's avalon3 miner do use MM from Avalon (direct download from http://downloads.canaan-creative.com). they didn't change anything.

There is another project using MM firmware. named: HashRatio (Machine: 768G). they using asicminer's ASIC. there is a Chinese post talking about that:

You can get the mm test script(avalon-mm-modular-test.py) from  https://github.com/BitSyncom/avalon-extras/tree/master/scripts.
If you want to deep in research, you can read the mm code(https://github.com/BitSyncom/mm) and cgminer(https://github.com/BitSyncom/cgminer/tree/master).
