@wondermine

can you tell us when we can expect an working fpga miner to buy ?

Never?
He only promised to deliver an IP core. Not a hardware.

so nanominer will work on an FPGA hardware?  lets say i stumble on a dev kit at a great price, but its not one used before for bitcoin, would there be any required optimization, or special steps needed?

Everything depends on hardware. If you buy some old dev kit with ancient chips then forget about mining. New hardware=possibility of high MH/s. But propably very pricey...
FPGAs on widely avaible dev kits have big disadvantage, price. There is just to many things on board thats are not needed. And mostly VRM's  on that boards are not good enough to deliver required amount of power.

We're going dedicated. And reasonable, no more pies in the sky, just verifiable numbers and efficient design.

Where are they? For spartan 6 there are ztex,icarus and the X6500 and for the cycloneV no datasheet, prices nor chips you can buy.

But stop, there was something,

If you read more carefully you'd notice I have no intention of using a Cyclone V. What I said was, when the new series is released it will hopefully mean price improvements on the chips that are currently giving 200 MH/s.

Verifiable: That is to say, I'm not developing a particularly novel bitstream, it's widely understood and proven that with the chips available to us we can get 200 MH/s.  The parts for the rest of it are available to purchase now, and once decisions are made on feature sets I will post what those parts are.  Again, verifiable, already in existence, not some insane thing that I need to prove.  The rest is PCB design, programming, and construction, all of which I am quite capable of doing.

Feel free to preface your comments by saying you didn't read carefully if you didn't.

How easily would this scale up to something along the lines of this: http://www.xilinx.com/products/boards-and-kits/EK-V7-VC707-G.htm

Or its wicked big brother the XC7V2000T?
