Hi all,

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?

Thanks.

PS. My sentences always starts with an "I" hahahaha. Sorry Tongue

I would seriously start by optimizing your code, if the calculation is anywhere near as simple as you say and you can only do 5k a second.

there are a few some conversions, but 5k is the the top. I could push it to 6k, but my computer is slower than a board specifically built for my needs lol.

What is the calculation that must be done?
