I have the opportunity to produce FGPA, so documentation is key.
Also a good start to see how open source is the FGPA community.

Any Gerber Files for FGPA ? based on Spartan 6 (XC6SLX150) or others...

Thanks Smiley

There are several different types of Bitcoin clients. Header-only clients like MultiBit trust that the majority of mining power is honest for the purposes of enforcing network rules such as the 21 million BTC limit. Full clients do not trust miners in this way.

At the moment, nobody has published free/open gerbers for an FPGA miner. Schematics are available for Icarus though.

It sounds like you want to check out Icarus and Lancelot at https://github.com/ngzhang.  For the PCB there is more information than the PDF as there are also .SchDoc file - I don't know this filetype but from googling it looks like it is the file type for creating a PCBs in Altium.

The board itself is around $50, some companies offer free or almost free pick and place service if you order some decent qty. FPGA is expensive, it is possible to get volume discounts if you go bulk. You can buy a ton of used FPGA chips on ebay do chip recovery

could someone link me to the specific gerber file for lancelot?  I have the link to the github but am unsure which is which file.  i'm new to this PCB business.
