I'm currently working on a personal project and I got a few $$ to spend, but no one to claim it lol.
I trying to build a "tower" of FPGAs that can do simple calculation (Like a = 65 <--- ASCII, add 1 which equals to 66 that represents 66 and so on)
I wrote a little while loop on C that does this for me, but the think is on my core i7 I can generate around 5k per second, which is not that bad, but I need it to go faster. I'm looking at around 500k per sec. This is why I'm going FPGA.
I saw this dev board ( bemicro ), which has an FPGA on it. Is it faster then my core i7 CPU? Is an ALTERA, should I get an XILINX one?
PS. My sentences always starts with an "I" hahahaha. Sorry
